    Description

    Greg Irons - "Vince" Sketch Original Art (1979). The late Greg Irons was one of the leading lights in Underground Comix. His work graced such publications as Skull Comics, Slow Death Funnies, and Heavy Tragi-comics. The animated Beatles film "Yellow Submarine" featured some of Iron's designs, and a number of classic 1960s psychedelic music posters were drawn by him. Irons was also well-known as an ace tattoo artist; in fact, he was spending time in Thailand in 1984, where he had just received a snake tattoo from a Buddhist monk. As he left the parlor, he was struck by a bus while crossing the street, killing him on the spot. This illustration, drawn in pen, pencil, and watercolor on a 8" x 10" sketchbook page, shows an artist-as-junkie image typical of Iron's Underground work. It is in Excellent condition.
