Original caricature drawing by Greg Scott of science fiction author Philip K. Dick and Rod Stewart which was used to illustrate the masthead for ÔRolling StoneÕ Magazine, Issue No. 199, November 6, 1975. Signed and inscribed by the artist to Philip K. Dick: ÒPhil - Thanks for all your works of inspiration! Greg Scott.Ó The drawing itself is signed ÒI. GilesÓ which was ScottÕs pseudonym. From the collection of Joan Simpson, the woman with whom Philip K. Dick shared his last serious romantic relationship. With a printed documentation certificate stating that this item bleonged to Simpson and shows photographs of Philip K. Dick and Joan Simpson and with the text of a letter, dated April 27, 1977, which Philip wrote to his friend, noted book dealer Ray Torrence (who was also a close friend of Dick and Joan), lovingly and eloquently expressing his deep feelings for Joan. The artwork is very handsomely framed and matted. Image size approximately 14 by 9 inches (18 by 14 inches overall). The drawing shows Philip K. Dick wearing an unbuttoned shirt as he does in one of the photographs of him illustrating the article, holding a copy of his novel ÔUbikÕ which at the time was being considered for a major film project by Hollywood and the French film director Jean-Pierre Gorin. Dick is joined in the drawing by Rod Stewart and both of them are leaning against Ô199Õ (the number of the issue), with a bundle of dynamite with the fuse lit in the foreground. The drawing highlights the cover stories for this issue of the magazine - one about Rod Stewart and his girlfriend Britt Ekland with a photo of them on the cover, and the other about the life and work of Philip K. Dick: ÔThe True Stories of Philip K. Dick: Burgling the Most Brilliant Sci-Fi Mind on Earth - It is Earth, IsnÕt It?Õ by Paul Williams. In 1974 when he was 23, Greg Scott was hired by ÔRolling Stone,Õ where he worked for six years as an illustrator before he began his freelance career. His work has appeared in ÔNew York Magazine,Õ ÔEsquire,Õ Psychology Today,Õ ÔScience Digest,Õ ÔPopular Mechanics,Õ the ÔNew York Times, etc. A copy of the ÔRolling StoneÕ issue is included. Both the framed drawing and the magazine are in fine condition. Codice inventario libreria 19043E
