Illustration from "Records" feature, Look magazine April 15th, 1958. Illustrated by Roy Doty.
Wow! This is one of my favourite illustrations of all times. Roy Doty's work seemed to be everywhere when I was growing up, exemplified by his 50 year long "Wordless Workshop" feature in Popular Science. He appears to be still active in illustration so check out his newer work at....
...and be sure to visit Liefpeng's recent plethora of Doty posts.....
Update: It's Roy Doty's birthday, so head over to Lief's blog to wish
Roy the best.
As well a hearty hello to all those visiting from the Boing Boing link. Thanks for stopping by!
Update 2: Boy oh boy...this illustration really struck a chord with some people. Within a couple days of my first posting this it was picked up by Boing Boing ( thanks to a link from LeifPeng ) and from there it was posted on quite a number of other sites and blogs. Over 800 views in the first week and it's closing in now on 1000, nearly double my next most viewed posting ( and that one's been up for months! ).
