Description:
Buck Brown Playboy Granny Cartoon Illustration Original Art (Playboy, 1974). The ever-frisky Granny is spotlighted in Buck Brown's uproarious cartoon, slated for the November 1974 issue of Playboy. The caption reads, "Hey, big boy, wouldn't you like to get more than a lousy dance for your ten cents?" This ribald illustration has an image area of 11" x 14", and the art is in Excellent condition. From the Estate of Charles Martignette.

Brown, Robert "Buck":Robert “Buck” Brown created Playboy magazine's famously naughty Granny cartoon character, and was a leading black artist whose work was filled with social commentary about the civil rights movement of the 1960s. His first Playboy cartoon, a black-and-white drawing of a boy holding a trumpet, appeared in 1962, and in the decades that followed, the magazine printed more than 600 of his cartoons. His work also appeared in Ebony, Jet, and Esquire magazines.
