Roy Lichtenstein liked the way commercial art looked and he liked the sharp, black outlines in comic book art. The Pop paintings he is known for combined the two styles.
In a lot of his works he used onomatopoeias. An onomatopoeia is a word that imitates the sound associated with a thing or action. Examples: Whaam, Pow
