An original oil on board illustration used as the cover for Joker No.16 - a 1949 digest sized magazine advertising "More Snappy Cartoons - Smack Full of Laughter!" A leggy and busty quintessentially Driben pin up beauty is seen trying her hand at a little "sofa fission" as the caption will have you know. Illustration is in a fine state of conservation, nicely framed and matted in a period, wide profile, handsome, gesso art deco frame.
