R.I.P. Pedro Bell

Chicago Sun-Times in 2009 that his work was “psychedelic from a Black perspective” and that his earliest inspiration came from his Baptist-preaching father’s Bible. The teachings from Revelations led to Bell reading science fiction. He reached out Clinton’s record company in the ’70s and offered his services. 

Rolling Stone: 

“The wild and bizarre artwork gave our early audience a sense of seeing the visual side of the music and the language. He had a way of translating and communicating what all the weirdness was about, and that you the consumer really wanted to figure it out, because it truly was otherworldly. Every time the two were done together it would create the One. They there would be another satisfied customer! Thanks to our Captain Draw the Clone Stranger of Artistic Gratification to the Nation, Mr. Pedro Bell. The Funk got Stronger. Your service to this world can never be calculated.”
