The King of Pluto

Created at the brink of 2004, the video documentary "the king of pluto" by sheila franklin offers a knowing glimpse into the body of work of Ultra-Renaissance artist Mike Wrathell, whose creative powers rival even the great cartoon character Yogi Bear, and maybe even Huckleberry Hound. As the great Dada artist Marcel Duchamp once said, "Posterity is the judge of genius."
