King Kong - This original screenprint by Bill was a graphic learning experience "borrowing" from many sources and using various new photo-production techniques; it has not been shown or sold in the marketplace after completion; a sidenote is that it was created by Bill after he saw a bumper sticker on a passing car which was later translated into Latin by Barry Beuth and appears in a subtle way on the lower portion of the icon frame (the bumper sticker read "King Kong Died For Your Sins")

John Perlman of Westbrae Foods - A Warhol-style screen printed photo-posterized portrait onto paint embellished canvas by Bill; John worked for a natural food company so lavish textures of red cabbage and carrot tops were used; unfinished and eventually painted over and then destroyed; only this one 35mm record of the 36" x 48" work remains
