Is anyone aware of any connection or confirmed inspiration for the art of Bride of Pinbot coming from Machine's Machine album cover? I think it's hard to deny.

IPDB states that Python had created the original sketch for the backglass but John Youssi was responsible for the detailed/final versions. Were either of them disco/R&B fans?

9 months later I’m finding this…. It seems most of the old pinball art is derivative/ blatantly stolen. See Space Invaders/ Alien- Geiger or Xenon/ Fantastic Planet- René Laloux. I think the culture of “borrowing” definitely existed in those old art rooms. This would be an incredible coincidence if not.
