    Dan DeCarlo Laugh Digest December 1968 Cover Illustration Original Art (Humorama, 1968). "There Smarty, now do you believe it's a natural tan?" Although previously used as an interior single panel gag in the Romp March, 1962 issue, this joke with lovely DeCarlo art was good enough to make the cover of Laugh Digest, and again on the cover of Joker V18#21 (August, 1971). It's a racy gag drawn in ink and grey tone gouache over graphite on illustration board with an image area of 10" x 12". The board is toned, with glue residue in the margins from various printing notes. Signed in the image area. In Very Good condition.
