Hey, Hey, LBJ

Here’s one of my very first published works; an illustration that was done while Lyndon Johnson was still president! That would put it, at the latest, in 1967, when I was fifteen or sixteen years old.

What you see here is LBJ assassinating J. Edgar Hoover, then catching some hot lead from Dick Tracy. The piece was done for my brother Tom Veitch’s early novel, The Luis Armed Story, which was published in Germany by Kiepenheuer & Witsch.

Looks like I’d just graduated from working in pencils to those new-fangled Rapidographs and zipatone.
