    Description

    Wally Wood - Pulp Illustration Original Art (undated). A gorgeous and pulchritudinous Wally Wood fantasy girl pilots her double-headed dragon through a prodigiously detailed landscape. The Wallace Wood Treasury printed this illustration with the caption, "Perhaps one of the strangest drawings Wood has ever done. This pulp drawing shows a strong influence from Virgil Finlay." Indeed, the work boasts a variegated use of pen styles and techniques to create dazzling textures and lighting effects. The drawing combines Wood's mastery of the humor, "good girl," and fantasy genres into a single image. The image area measures 14.5" x 17". There are a few touches of white-out along the borders of the paper; otherwise the art is in Excellent condition. Wallace Wood has signed the drawing in the lower right. This is a beautiful piece of early "Woodwork," and a shining example of why he is hailed as one of comics' all-time greats!
