This unpublished original ink drawing is signed by the artist Vaughn Bode!

Vaughn Bode was a thriving underground cartoonist in the late 1960s and early 1970s known for his character Cheech Wizard and his artwork depicting voluptuous women. From 1968 and continuing until his death in 1975 Bode entered a prolific period of creativity introducing a number of cartoons that ran in underground newspapers or erotic magazines.

This ORIGINAL pen and ink drawing by Bode was created in 1966 during his time attending Syracuse University. One of the towers on the drawing reads "Barbs", a reference to his first wife, Barbara Bode.

Original art is incredibly rare and valuable, as pieces like this are generally traded privately and seldom come up for public offering. This is a one-of-a-kind item that is wildly unique and an amazing collecting opportunity!
