    Dwaine Tinsley - Original Cover Art for Hustler Humor, "Eyeball Soup" + more (Hustler, 1980-99). During Dwaine Tinsley's tenure as Hustler magazine's Cartoon Editor, he debuted an iconoclastic brand of vicious satire that ferociously attacked everything in it's path, and eventually cost Hustler millions of dollars in legal fees to defend. Here we offer four pieces of original cover art from Hustler Humor, the cartoon magazine edited for 25 years by Tinsley. This group of food-themed Hustler Humor covers includes: "Eyeball Soup" (1980), "Fat Cat Chef" (1999), "Duh Dummies Cereal" (1980), and "Finger Sandwich" (pre-1980). The first two pieces of art measure 9" x 12", while "Duh Dummies Cereal" is 9" x 10.5", and "Finger Sandwich" is 11" x 14". Tinsley's art is bold and colorful, executed in pen, marker, and watercolor. While the humor is fairly rude, it's certainly tame by Hustler's standards since they were chosen to be uncovered on the news stands for better display, instead of the "blacked out" plastic covers required for Hustler and other sexually explicit publications.
