Jim Franklin

Jim Franklin was the house poet, illustrator, and the skating Mr. Peanut on stage at Armadillo World Headquarters.  He literally lived there upstairs in a large chaotic space filled with his paintings, and his various collections. His Magritte like work was beyond anything most of us had ever seen.

Here is the well known Bruce Springsteen Show poster

And here is a less known Tom T Hall

One time Jim went off with Bob Dylan and Leon Russell to Mexico. 

We were all jealous...until they ditched him.
