DescriptionWendy Pini - Galaxy Cover Original Art (1974). In this scintillating group lot, a preliminary rough of an alternate cover design accompanies Wendy Pini's finished painting for the July, 1974 cover of Galaxy SF digest. Two beautiful women battle it out in outer space, in orbit, high above an planet's turbulent atmosphere -- one with a ray gun, the other with a bow and arrow. This piece was done very early in Wendy's professional career; the first issue of Elfquest wouldn't come out until several years later. Wendy's finished acrylic on board painting has an image area of 15" x 17.5", while her alternate design was drawn with mixed-media on paper, and has an image area of 12" x 17". Both pieces are in Excellent condition, and a tear sheet of the printed cover is also included. From the collection of Richard and Wendy Pini. Richard says: "Before Elfquest, Wendy was making a name for herself in science fiction and fantasy illustration, providing cover art and interior illustrations to several of the (then) extant successors to the pulp magazines. Often she would paint little inserted tributes to people or places that we knew well, just to spice up the art. This cover is the very first such art she did; previously she had only interior illustrations published.".
