Roy G. Krenkel - "a Fighting Man Of Mars" - Original Pencil Illustration - Erb For Sale

Roy G. Krenkel -

"A Fighting Man of Mars" -An Original Drawing by Roy G. Krenkel. Soft pencil on a 5 x 7 inch piece of thin paper with a slightly smaller image, unsigned. Here is one of RGK"s more finished concept drawings in this case for the paperback cover A Fighting Man of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs published by Ace Books in the 1960s. This famous series of covers introduced Krenkel to a larger audience of Burroughs aficionadosand also gave Frazetta a doorway into the fantasy illustration field. At about this time Frank was still laboring in the vineyards of comic book work and doing occasional work for some of the lurid men's magazines.Krenkel asked for some minor assistance from Frank on a few of the Burroughs covers (this one included) and continued to buttonhole Don Walheimabout the advisability of using Frank on some of the other Burroughs covers being planned by Ace. This astute advice was not heeded by Walheim immediately but eventually he did come around and the rest is art history. We see here an early concept variation on the eventual published cover. In the final version (which is a painted cover in color) the figures are reversed and the twin Barzoomian suns nestlefetchingly behind the spired edifice. Here the tone of the work is moodier and darker both in terms of value and in terms of overall atmosphere. It is rare to come upon Krenkel's more finished drawings for the Ace Burroughs covers and this one while small in size is indeed a good one.I have been told by the publisher David Spurlock on some authoritythat the long delayed third volume in the RGK sketchbook series will appear from Vanguard Publications this summer. It is a consumation devoutly to be wished for and embraced by all those who cherish the work of a great draughtsman.
Needless to say this drawing comes from the archives of the RGK Estate and has never been offered for sale before. Authentication from theRGK Estate upon demand.
