    Dwaine Tinsley - Original Cover Art for Hustler Humor, "Desert Scene" + more (Hustler, 1980-97). In 1975 Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt brought Dwaine Tinsley on as Cartoon Editor, the designated hitter for Hustler's all-out monthly attack on the boundaries of good taste. Dwaine's job description was a perfect match for his anti-establishment leanings, and his down-home sense of humor. Eventually Dwaine's cartoons for Hustler became popular enough that they warranted their own publication: Hustler Humor. This group of four published Hustler Humor covers consists of "Desert Scene, Chicks vs. Water" (1980), "Sperm Bank" (1980), "Complaint Department" (1997), and "UFO and Airliner" (1985). Funny, and edgy, but tame enough to be displayed openly on public newsstands. All four covers are done in pen, marker, and watercolor, measuring 9" x 12".
