RIP The great Spain Rodriguez passed away at 72.

From Ron Turner via The Beat:

It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing this morning of Spain Rodriguez. He passed at home with his daughter and wife at his bedside at about 7 this morning. He had been fighting cancer for a long time. He was a wonderful father, husband, and friend. His art challenged, changed and enlightened and entertained us for over five decades. His passing coincided with the penumbra eclipse of the moon, like Spain’s shadow from the outer edge of the art world’s face. Services are pending, please give the family some time.

ON A LIGHTER NOTE! Ladies dressed up as appliances at the Los Angeles Electrical Exposition in 1936 via the amazing “How to Be a Retronaut.

’Til tomorrow, gang!
