Q: I’m trying to find out where this Howard Chaykin illustration was used. I’ve looked through back issues, but can’t find it anywhere.
A: I looks very familiar, but I don’t know where I’ve seen it before. A similar illustration, possibly by Chaykin, appears in a “house” ad in the June 1975, promoting the July 1975 (3-D) issue. The concept is the same, but it’s a one-eyed guy (and he’s not wearing a skimpy outfit). I wonder if perhaps this art was used in ads placed in other magazines (e.g., Rolling Stone) to promote the 3-D issue? That may be where I remember it from. I checked several issues back in NL, thinking it might be in another house ad, and didn’t see it.
If anyone else can solve this mystery, please post it in a comment.
