From Trey Speegle’s article for worldofwonder.net:
To his own dismay, he was a queer icon that will not be soon forgotten. In his later years, Bidgood was exhibited by Brian Clamp at ClampArt in NYC. You can see more of his ground-breaking work here.
Bidgood’s last Facebook post was on Jan. 14,
“WOULD YOU BELIEVE! I fell out of bed this morning…I do not mean I suffered financial or commercial collapse… I fell out of friggin’ bed!”
James Bidgood was 88.
