A Richard Taylor “Rough” On Ebay
Here’s something you don’t see very often: a pencil sketch…i.e., a “rough” drawing by the late great Richard Taylor. I can’t remember ever seeing one of his roughs up for grabs before. Mr. Taylor had perhaps the most out-there style of the golden age New Yorker artists (those saucer-shaped eyes!). For what it’s worth, a finished Taylor drawing bearing the above caption (“He just makes it live, doesn’t he?”) does not appear in The New Yorker’s database. 
Richard Taylor (self portrait from Meet the Artist) Born in Fort William, Ontario, Sept. 18, 1902. Died in 1970. New Yorker work: 1935 -1967. Collections: The Better Taylors ( Random House, 1944, and a reprint edition by World Publishing, 1945), Richard Taylor’s Wrong Bag (Simon & Schuster, 1961). Taylor also authored Introduction to Cartooning ( Watson-Guptill, 1947). From Taylor’s introduction: the “book is not intended to be a ‘course in cartooning’…instead, it attempts to outline a plan of study — something to be kept at the elbow to steer by.”
