Oh, I am so very grateful to Pony Pal™ J. Frigg, who has sent in a scan of this magnificent big-eyed hipster for our enjoyment. I was aware that "Lee" painted groovy go-go pre-teens, but I don't have any examples of those myself, so I am very thankful that Mr. (Mrs.?) Frigg sent this. Lee's swingin' adolescents are more iconic, more fun than his depressing orphans. The style of the clothing and fake record covers puts this squarely in the mid-1960s.
"J" wondered if this one had a matching girl pendant, and I'm certain it did; I'm pretty sure I've seen it. I seem to recall it as showing a dancing tambourine player, her dark hair swaying. So good.
This is the style hilariously parodied for the cover of "If I Were a Carpenter," the fab Carpenters tribute album.
Thanks again, J. Frigg, and I welcome any and all contributors to the celebration of big-eyed art here on PSP! Yay!
