Jack Davis' last painting 😞

He did this painting for me at age 90, just before having some strokes.  So very sad to hear of his passing today...just talked with my ol' pal Hank Harrison, who wrote the first two books on Jack.  So glad Jack approved of the chapter I wrote on him in my MAD MONSTER PARTY book!   I saved his ecstatic voice mail regarding the DVD of all of his TV Commercials and interviews I made for him!   Going to watch that again today!   We included this painting full page in my last book THE ARTHUR RANKIN, JR. SCRAPBOOK:  The Birth of Animagic, along with a photo of a beautiful painting he did about 10 years ago for Arthur Rankin for MAD MONSTER PARTY REUNION!  Jack was a one of a kind and a dear friend and we will all miss him!
