The Pool King was never on the Strip or part of the casinos. He was on Charleston Avenue and built by a sculptor named Pendergrass. He towered over many of the neon signs in the boneyard and was quite an impressive figure, not one to be ignored. I love the variety of fonts and interrupted words that play out in the compositions. Behind the king, (not Elvis) is the Silver Slipper, bits of the Horseshoe and the Lone Palm.
