BROKERED ART
I have the good fortune to be in the position to broker deals selling classic, desirable
artwork. No, I'm not connecting you to Monet paintings or Rembrandt etchings, but I do
have friends and colleagues who want to occasionally unload artwork in order to better
cope with this struggling economy. Every now and then I will sell my own stuff too. Have
a seat. Look around.

DAVE BERG (1920 - 2002) worked for Timely
Comics and later drew Combat Kelly for Marvel.
But, of course, his greatest fame came as a
contributor to MAD Magazine, where his "The
Lighter Side of..." feature was one of the most
popular in the magazine's history.

This is the original art for a Humorama Girlie
Cartoon, from 1957. The  The image area
measures approximately 9" x 10.5". The art is
in very good condition with light overall aging.

BILL WARD (1919 - 1998) worked for Quality,
Military and Fawcett comics becoming known
for the Blackhawk and Torchy titles.  Later
rendered hundreds and hundreds of girlie
cartoons for Humorama and other racy humor  
magazines of the era, literally pioneering one of
the sexiest, most feminine, most preferred
good girl styles of the day, particularly in his
usage of conte crayon. Ward's earlier work,
such as the piece above, is arguably the most
collectible of all the former Humorama artists.

"STOP THE PRESS"
Ink & Zip-a-Tone on Art Board
9.25" x 12.25"
Bill Ward, 1970, Unframed
Original Art - From Humorama's joker
publication based on rear notations and
stamps. Presumably, in order to make the
caption work, the upper left corner was cut
out and replaced with the depicted sign
for "The Daily Herald." Shows the typical
signs of wear for the era. This is also a
very early use of zip-a-tone, adhesive
backed textures that could be laid and cut
to any shape.

"HUERTA'S UNPUBLISHED SIGNED COMIC-PAGE"
Ink over Blue Pencil on Comic Book Board
11" x 17"
Armando Huerta, 2011, Unframed
Original Art - From the Dark Lord of Pinups, a rare
unpublished comic book page from a guy who
rarely does comic book pages! Armando Huerta is
a pinup icon but in 2011 he had never crossed
over into routinely doing comic book panels. You
likely won't find a Huerta page like this anywhere
prior to 2011 because they are that rare! This
unique foray never got published, possibly
because it would be so hard to keep up with
Armando's insane level of sexy detail!

"FACTORY MADE"
Ink and Inkwash on Bond
4.5" x 9.75"
Bill Wenzel, Unframed
Original Art - What more unsung pinup and good
girl artist from the 50's and 60's is there than
William Michael Wenzel, one of the most
recognizable contemporaries of Bill Ward. These
guys were among the first Humorama pinup
juggernauts, belting out wonderful renditions of
females for scads of publications long before it
was truly appreciated. You may recognize
Wenzel's art from the cover of the best seller,
"Coffee, Tea or Me?" What Ward was to a conte
crayon, Wenzel was to india ink and a brush! With
an economy of brush stroke, Wenzel brought
cute, bubbly bombshells to life for myriad
Humorama magazines and later Playboy. I am
confident that Wenzel pieces are going to rapidly
appreciate as his artwork becomes newly
appreciated and as his work becomes more and
more scarce. This piece has been scissors cut to
its current size giving it irregular edges but it is
still a complete and sexy Wenzel rendering.

"FLIGHT RISQUE"
Ink and Inkwash on Bond
8.5" x 11"
Bill Wenzel, Unframed
Original Art - Yet another offering from William
Michael Wenzel, one of the most recognizable
contemporaries of Bill Ward. Wenzel was a master
with a brush, able to layout a page with crisp, deft
strokes to create a panel seemingly chock full of
detail. The real treat, however, is his playful,
voluptuous renditions of bombshell women. You
may recognize Wenzel's art from the cover of the
best seller, "Coffee, Tea or Me?" I am confident
that his artwork is going to rapidly appreciate as
his pieces become newly appreciated and as his
work become more and more scarce. This piece
offers a subtle blue wash for shading rather than
the traditional black and grey ink wash tones. This
rendering had been stored by the previous
owner in a plastic wrap which I have not
disturbed. Within the plastic, the piece looks to
be in very good condition.

WILLIAM MICHAEL WENZEL (1918 – 1987) was an
American cartoonist best known as a widely published
good girl artist for men's magazines. His bawdy, cartoon  
illustrations were published over the course of several
decades, from such publications as Judge in the 1940s to
Sex to Sexty in the 1960s and 1970s, and particularly for
the Humorama division of publisher Martin Goodman's
variously titled corporations. Wenzel's pieces, which
feature busty, big-eyed, yet innocently risque young
women, wereas published in such magazines and digests
as Gaze, Joker, Jest, Comedy, and Stare. Most captions
were written by the artist himself. In 1967 Wenzel drew
illustrations for the book Coffee, Tea or Me? that,
according to the author Donald Bain, "contributed
significantly to the book's success".

ARMANDO HUERTA (? - Present)  Remarkably
self-taught in his sketching abilities, Armando  
learned airbrushing through a small 3-hour
class at the Universidad Autonoma
Metropolitana - a university located in Mexico
City. Armando is inspired by artists Picasso,
Olivia, and is hugely influenced by super realism
pinup artist, Hajime Sorayama. His work is
largely recognized within the art community.
