The Borisography: Q

Q (1982)
Q, movie poster Movie poster for the 1982 Larry Cohen film Q.

The movie tells the story of a quetzalcoatl (see the calendar painting Quetzalcoatl below for more information about the beast) running amok in a big city.

The painting is very reminiscent of the final scenes from the movie King Kong but I do not know if this was intentional.

The Quarterback (BJ)
The Quarterback, Boris & Julie One of a series of fantasy (American) football related paintings that appeared on Boris's and Julie's old Imaginistix web site. I have not seen it published anywhere else and so have no idea why it, or any of the other paintings, were produced.

See The Colisseum for a list of the other paintings.
