Parker had a friend with him, who showed me a book of art drawn on matchbooks by Parker. These had been done over a series of time and over a thousand had been done.
This image of Hat was taken from Rick Parker's Art blog, in which he states in his bio...
I do quite a bit of humorous drawing to amuse myself and others, but I feel most fulfilled as an artist creating 3-dimensional objects, incorporating existing or found objects into my work. I believe that art can be a great form of self-expression and through the use of cartooning I endeavor to help people to express themselves and communicate to others their own personal thoughts, feelings and ideas about the world.

Rick Parker has two sites that I have found, one featuring his art the other featuring his photographs, with a truly a strangely wonderful collection of art, well worth the time to look and think!
