    Description

    Harvey Kurtzman, Bill Elder, Frank Frazetta, and Jack Davis Playboy July 1965 Little Annie Fanny "Surfers" Page 3 Original Art (HMH Publishing, 1965). Four powerhouse titans, masters of the craft, joined forces to produce this incredible and chaotic page. Three of these icons of the industry all worked at MAD magazine for EC, while at the same time Frank Frazetta honed his craft working with Al Capp on Li'l Abner. These guys are the Zen Masters of the Zany.
    "Good Girl" specialist Frank Frazetta painted the smokin' hot babes-in-bikinis, Jack Davis handled the zany beach "extras," Bill Elder painted the Annie and Ralphie faces and added his hallmarked background gags, and Harvey Kurtzman wrote and laid out the whole fershlugginer yarn. And you don't have to look far to see that Kurtzman was still ringing with that MAD vibe.
    As was the style for this series, these pages are dripping with gorgeous colors created in a rich combination of oil, tempera, and watercolor paint. The image area measures 14.25" x 20.25" in the Plexiglas front 23.5" x 29.5" frame. In Excellent condition.
