Happy Birthday Jack Davis

The Commuter's Best Friend Original Art by Jack Davis
Happy 90th birthday to cartoonist Jack Davis, best known for his work at MAD Magazine. Our Collector's Treasure of the Day is this original pencil drawing by Davis for a print ad done for Group W's news service. Group W is an alternate name for the Westinghouse Broadcasting Company. The firm hired Davis to design several print ads for them, among them this one depicting a man nervously looking at his watch near a train track. A copy of the final ad is included, featuring the tagline "The commuter's best friend".  Approximately 7 x 9 inches. Fine condition. Authenticity guaranteed for life.
