    Bill Ward Breezy #18 February-1957 Single Panel Gag Illustration Original Art (Timely Features/Humorama, 1957). "You're right, honey, when it comes to knowing what's on a guy's mind, I gotta hand it to you!" Bill Ward women are created out of high heels, hose, platinum hair, and lots and lots of curves! The gag panel was later reprinted in the March 1964 issue of Zip. It was rendered in ink over graphite with white paint highlights on onion skin paper. The 16.5" x 22.5" paper was then affixed to a 18.5" x 24.5" sheet of Bristol board with production tape. There are numerous notes in the margins, possibly changing the punchline from one appearance to the other. Of note, the marginal notation on the upper right says "take out hairbrush". Sure enough, if you look in the man's hand, you can see he was originally using a hairbrush as a paddle. The art has toned, and has several stain spots on it. In Very Good condition.
