Milton Ellis

Milton Ellis was homelessafter a freak tornado barreled through his neighborhood.He had only that two grocery bagsfilled with personal possessions and his large reverse-paintings on Mylar, which had been rolled-up and stowed away for 30 years. Through these paintings, Ellis had expressed his vision of a pending apocalypse. He becamemore certain of the total collapse of civilization and believed that our only escape would be to a new colony in outer space.
