These hippie pamphlet pics were drawn by the father of a friend of mine over on Facebook — well, not really a friend, but you know, a “Facebook friend” — and I thought I’d share ‘em.
He says his dad, Thomas Warkentin, was a ‘Hippie artist’ in the 1960s, but my guess is that he was a jesus freak who thought he was being funny by doing sort of a Mad Magazine-esque series of drawings. Warkentin, who used several aliases in his career, later moved on to album cover art, book and magazine covers and animation design.
So here is a series that he illustrated in 1967 using the alias Ken Espinosa. It is based on the cartoon “Happiness Is…”. [showing the front and back of the pamphlet here]
