Quoted from PhilGreg:

Is Gordon Morison still alive?

He lives on through his art.

A noble achievement!

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Spoken by a man who has never seen Now!

Quoted from o-din:

Yes, where would pinball be without all the goofy faced cartoon dudes and works of art like Jungle and Team One.

C'mon - really?!

How about Dimension, Captain Card, Jacks Open, Target Alpha, Joker Poker, and many other classic 70's backglasses that he did?

Quoted from o-din:

All it took was bringing in more appealing to me pinball art such as those done by Parker, Molentin, and Stenholm, to realize what I wanted to look at every day.
Glad he has so many fans though, as that makes it easier to get the ones I care for. I don't have any more Ems from the 70s any way, so it all works out just fine.
When I did play pinball in the 70s, it was Christensen's art that attracted me the most. And still does.

I pretty much like all EM pinball artists' work to varying degrees too, but I'd definitely trade you Christensen for Morison if it came down to it.
