    Description

    John Pound Dope Comix #2 Cover Painting Color Production Art Original Art (Kitchen Sink Press, 1978). This hookah hooked-up camel bears a resemblance to a certain cigarette mascot. John Pound's original line art is reproduced here on an acetate overlay topping a rich and opulent gouache painting full of lush, vivid colors. Even without the printed overlay this is one fine looking piece of art. It was based on a concept by Steve Garris, which is one of the reasons this cover image was such a popular poster back in the day. This piece was featured on page 107 of the museum catalog book Underground Classics: The Transformation of Comics Into Comix by James Danky and Denis Kitchen (Harry N. Abrams, 2009). The image area on the illustration board measures approximately 15" x 21". There is some very light toning and handling wear, otherwise, this king-sized camel is in Excellent condition. From the Eric Sack Collection.
