DescriptionGreg Irons - Deviant Slice Funnies #1 Cover Original Art (Print Mint Press, 1972). Self-taught cartoonist Greg Irons arrived in San Francisco in early 1967, and roamed around the Haight-Ashbury, prolifically rendering acid-enhanced impressions in his sketchbook. He would later use these images in the creation of his rock posters. Apart from poster art, Irons became known as one of the seminal figures in Underground comix, but it was the art of tattooing that eventually became his all-consuming passion. "Greg was somewhat ahead of the game in that he could just flip through his sketch book and cop ideas. A lot of what he drew were bizarre conglomerates of urban decay," said his brother, Mark Irons. Which leads us directly to this gluttonous pen and ink, and watercolor illustration, created for the cover to the first Deviant Slice Funnies. Irons listed Mad artists, Harvey Kurtzman, Bill Elder, Wally Wood and Jack Davis as his earliest influences, and you can feel their inspiration in this decadent delineation from 1972. The cover's image area measures 8" x 11" and the art is in Excellent condition.
