    Description

    Roy G. Krenkel - E. R. Burroughs' John Carter of Mars Sketch Original Art (undated). Roy Krenkel spotlights John Carter riding his mount (known as a thoat to be precise) beneath the twin moons of Barsoom, with a towering city glittering in the background. This drawing was probably done in the 1960s, and is one of Krenkel's larger pencil pieces. Roy Krenkel's influence in spearheading the revival of a fantasy illustration tradition established by John Allen St. John would be hard to overstate. Even the most renowned modern fantasy master, Frank Frazetta, was swept up in Roy's orbit. On his groundbreaking Conan the Adventurer cover Frazetta gave his "grateful acknowledgement to advisor Roy Krenkel." This art measures an overall 11" x 14.5" and is in Excellent condition. E.R. Burroughs' fantasy world of Mars is handsomely limned by the graphic wizardry of Roy G. Krenkel!
