Salvaged from the Realist Archive Project
, here are my 1965 drawings of Dick Gregory, Woody Allen and Steve Allen. I'll forego my usual background notes on my work because I actually only have a vague memory of doing these. I do know that of all my contributions to The Realist
, this was the only time Paul Krassner gave me an assignment to do portraits. Perhaps Bruce Stark
was an influence here. As I recall, Stark did regular single column ink portraits during the 1960s for the Daily News
in addition to his caricatures and sports cartoons. He was a staff artist at the Daily News
for more than two decades.
