Comment: In addition to the story credits that appear above, there’s something else tantalizing that is written on the back of the art... see photo of the back of the art... “1st try by Mark English”. So, maybe that means it wasn’t published. Why would one write “1st try,” if there wasn’t a 2nd? And why do a second if the first was published. Regardless, if you like the American Illustration of the 1960s... and like any other period there were practitioners who were truly brilliant (like Mark English) and those who were equally un-brilliant (like.... Gee, you didn’t actually think I’d name names, did you?)... here’s a great example and at less than $2,000 it’s pretty tough to go wrong with this as an acquisition.
