(Charlie McGill, 1955) An original portrait of Maila Nurmi, the 1950s TV horror hostess and star of Ed Wood's "Plan Nine from Outer Space. Nurmi is showcased in her guise as the sultry "Vampira" alongside a tiger. Artist McGill, best known for his sports cartoons and over 4,000 portraits of athletes, stepped outside of his typical subject matter for this piece. Signed "Charles" instead of his usual "Charlie," this 1955 portrait predates McGill's stated first art sale by a year. Accomplished in ink on coquille paper, the 17.5"x13.25" art is in fine condition, with slight wear to edges from age.
