    Frank Brunner - "Whiskers" Pin Up Original Art (1974). For animal lovers of all types, here's a pretty portfolio piece from artist Frank Brunner, best known for his Bronze Age depictions of Dr. Strange and Howard the Duck. This stunning pin up hails from the Flesh and Fantasy portfolio, with a limited edition of 1000, and printed by Middle Earth in 1974. Apparently ducks weren't all Frank was interested in back then! We're going to ignore the obvious innuendoes which this piece immediately brings to mind, and stick with "just the facts, ma'am" -- the fact is, this is a lovely sketch, with a nice "Art Deco"-style background, a beautiful nude model, and a tame-yet-terrifying leopard up front. Brunner himself has thought highly enough of this drawing to include it in the "Nudes" section of his website. The art is in Excellent condition, and is on a 12" x 17" piece of bristol board. The Brunner scroll logo at the top is an original paste-up stat.
