Joe Wehrle ORIGINAL ART Published in Eternity SF Mag! - eBay (item 310105222147 end time Dec-05-08 18:28:57 PST)
This vintage signed original art was created by Joe Wehrle, Jr. in 1976 and appeared in the final issue of Eternity Science Fiction magazine. It is India ink on scratchboard, 8 x 11" with the original protective tissue that was attached before mailing to the editor. It bears the notation that it is to be reproduced at 100%.
We don't remember much after all these years about the story this art illustrated. The image is a girl who is looking to break away from an abusive situation. We have the issue somewhere around here. Do you have a copy?
Wehrle is noted for work in Galaxy and IF digest science fiction magazines, covers and interior illustrations in Arkham House and other Mirage Press books, illustrations for Burroughs-oriented journals and on a lighter note, the story and drawings in the Big Little Book Cauliflower Catnip.
