    Description

    Bill Ward - Pin Up Original Art (undated). Bill Ward's shapely sirens have been thrilling fans for many years; here's a great pin up cartoon featuring a long-legged beauty by the sea. The caption, included in this matted piece, is faded, but reads "Well, I'll say this - you're the trimmest craft I've ever seen attached to that piling!" Brother, he ain't kidding! This large drawing (approximately 17" x 24") is rendered in pencil on light brown paper, with highlights added in white. The unusual pattern that makes up the young lady's stockings and scarf appear to have been made by rubbing a pencil over actual lace material under the paper. Overall, the piece is in Very Good condition; there is a minor 1.5" tear along the upper right field, in the shading, but you'll have a hard time tearing your eyes away from the obvious stellar attraction to even notice! Set your sights on this stunning seductress, and "set sail" with your bid!
