Elvis is often referred to as "the King of Rock and Roll." Since his officially documented death, August 16, 1977, Elvis has been spotted in many places.  I took these photos of a HUGE Elvis in Crystal River, Florida in the late 1980's.

Art by Cline A. Siegenthaler

1991 Cline A. Siegenthaler

I believe this looks like it might be a dragon? Or maybe it is an Alligator with legs and arms??  What ever it is, I like it.

This postcard is unused.

Cline A. Siegenthaler has been exhibiting his Science Fiction and Fantasy artwork since 1989. His portfolio is an ever-changing zoo of bizarre aliens, whimsical gargoyles and over-engineered, mechanical beasts.
