In the years since Roy Linton, his father and his friend Roy Funnell created the posters featured in yesterday’s Big Something, Roy Linton became a world-class auto body painter and turned his personal creative impulses toward cat photography and collage (though he still designs a few posters).

In this brief portrait of the artist as a middle-aged man we visit Linton at his home in Denver and look at some of his work.
