Does Bill Sienkiewicz have ADD?

Bill Sienkiewicz impresses me everytime I pick up one of his books. His art is so diverse, almost like he gets bored with one style after another and this reveals more of his conscience thought. Here are some paintings of Elektra, not a big fan of that character(thanks for nothing Jennifer Gardner), but the art is what arouses me.
This is the cover art to Elektra Assassin #1 (above) and following are some sample pages.
What the hell is up with the lower left cell! Awesome!
More goodness..
the tones in the glass are well done, same with the hands, expressions, thanks...
Elektra Assassin #4's cover has a very strong JC Leyendecker influence(composition, stylish babies and pink flowers).
Of course who could forget this cover art...totally bad ass.
I still have some issues of Stray Toasters I haven't gone through and more Elektras, so, there might be a part 2 coming soon. Hope you enjoy his work as much as me. Bye.
Also, while we are on the subject of Elektra, here is a Kent Williams poster I had when I was a kid. Bye for reals.
