    Bill Ward - "Hormone Painting" Original Art (circa 1960s). Wow! Better be careful looking at this item -- it'll scorch your eyes! This gag cartoon painting was done by Bill Ward for an unspecified men's magazine during the 1960s. It features one of Ward's tall blond female characters, not unlike his most famous creation, Torchy, from the 1940s comic books. It is as if Torchy had suddenly been transferred into the 1960s and given the "big hair" style of the day. Ward always gave a little bit "extra" to his Good Girl art; no wonder he remains so popular with collectors today! The art measures approximately 11" x 14", and is in Excellent condition. We're going to need to see an age statement from the (very) lucky winner of this sizzling hot, adults-only piece; a note from the doctor may be in order as well!
