Painting by Frank Frazetta

Wayne [Coyne of Flaming Lips] still spent hours painting, sometimes creating surreal fantasy scenes in the style of Frank Frazetta -- "You'll see some of the girls in those paintings with long black hair that look just like me, except he always drew gigantic boobs on them," Hali [his former girlfriend circa 1980] said [..].

From a book I'm reading now: Staring at Sound: The True Story of Oklahoma's Fabulous Flaming Lips by Jim Derogatis (p. 13). There's a reproduction of one of those Frank Frazetta-inspired paintings on the same page as well. Please leave a comment if you want me to scan it.

Highly recommended - the Flaming Lips story is very inspirational:

Frank Frazetta (born February 9, 1928) is an American fantasy and science fiction artist. He is one of the most emulated artists of these genres in the world.
