Graphite Drawings Installed at Characters Restaurant, Lancaster, Pennsylvania

From Right to Left, Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn, Christopher Reeves, and Norma Jean Baker (Marilyn Monroe), all (32" x 40") pencil and graphite powder

Marlene Dietrich (32" x 40") pencil

After thirty years the drawings have been resurrected from their cardboard box coffins. They are once again hanging, this time in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Some have been buried for as long as thirty-five years, others only twenty-eight. These are some of the drawings I have left from my 15 minutes of (if not fame) success (as Clark Klomp) back in the late 1970's and early 1980's.* I had no idea that I would feel so wonderful upon seeing them brought back from the dead. Thank you Meghan, Jose, and Character's Restaurant for bringing these iconic character images back into the light of day!

Marlin Brando, (32" x 40"), pencil

*"Clark Klomp" was the alias given to YT by certain adopted family during those too few minutes of success in New York City and Philadelphis.
