In some ways, Scott's artwork resembles the "Funk Art" created by artists in San Francisco during the late 1960s and early 1970s. That superficial resemblance is not a matter of direct influence, but rather is due to Ehrisman and the artists of that era having similar sources of inspiration -- like that of underground comics, performance art, highly commercialized culture surrounding popular music, and a Dada-inspired appreciation for nonsense that informs both the Pop Art movement and much of contemporary art.
