    Vaughn Bode - Original Art for Deadbone Erotica, "Rocket Broad, Test Pilot" (Cavalier, 1974). This incredibly beautiful page was originally part of a series that ran in three-page installments in the men's magazine, Cavalier. Bode was a gifted artist who had a totally original style. His influence runs deep today, many years after his tragic untimely death in 1975. The underground art movement known as graffiti in New York City is widely known for its use of Bode's images. This particular example features a lizard character, similar to his famous "Cheech Wizard" riding atop a nearly-nude buxom young lass as they both fly through the clouds. Looks like fun! Delicately drawn in ink, colored pencil, and watercolor on a 13.5" x 16.5" page, with an image area of 9.25" x 12.5" This page is in excellent condition. Dis here is da good stuff, folks!
