    Bob Zoell "Ho Hum" Color Guide Art (c. 1970). Bob Zoell emerged in the late 1960s as part of a Los Angeles art collective that include Charles White III and Dave Willardson that incorporated nostalgic designs within contemporary commercial art. His early work appeared in National Lampoon and Earth magazines, as well as album covers for the Flamin' Groovies and Todd Rundgren. He has since moved on to a very successful career in Fine Art utilizing simple geometric designs, and clever, funny works that, at first glance, appear to be standard city street signs, but with phrases like "I wish I were happy" instead of "no parking zone." Here's an original color guide to one of his cartoon-like pieces, with a hippie girl serving a clown breakfast in bed. Color/black marker on photocopy pencil line art paper print, with an approximate image area of 20" x 8". Very Good condition with handling wear. From the Eric Sack Collection.
