More ink line drawings

More sample ink line illustrations that I did in the mid 1960's which illustrate stories by Edgar Rice Burroughs. These illustrations were done for my New York reps to present to art directors at various book publishers. Some interesting assignments resulted from these efforts. It's very important for illustrators to produce art samples to show various clients.

Harry, you're the man! Love your artwork and I am also a big fan of Virgil Finlay. I am now bookmarking your blog and will be sure to check back. I am stuck in the 60's and 70's!
