FRANK STACK. Page 1 (of 3) of "Paddy Booshwah, Undercover Executive."
Satirist Stack never uses his real
name, but it's clear that the bourgeois ex-CIA man, ex-Yankee
and Texas oilman walking the streets of Houston in 1964 is none
other than George Bush (the senior), and future president.
Like the Ronald Reagan satire offered elsewhere in this
web gallery, Stack loves to dive into political humor. Great
page for a card-carrying Democrat or political activist (or a
perfect gift for that Republican you know who collects underground
comix and has a sense of humor).
This original art is warranted to be from the artist's personal
collection (Stack is exclusively represented by this agency).
The art comes with a letter of authenticity upon request. See
"bio" section for information on Frank
Stack (a.k.a. Foolbert Sturgeon), one of the very
earliest and most important of the underground cartoonists.
Medium/size/condition/price: Drawn in pen & ink, with some minor white-out
for corrections and texture, on Bristol board measuring 11 1/2
inches wide by 14 1/2 inches high. The title, credits and mechanical
lettering in panel two are paste-ups. The top of the art is hinge-mounted
with archival tape to a professionally cut mat measuring 16 inches
wide x 20 inches high.
