Carol Channing Pencil Sketch

Pencil sketch on a napkin in 1973.

July 12, 2011
I’ve been looking for this for a long time ever since I met Richard Skipper in the mid eighties. I drew this back in 1973 when I was in art school for illustration. I was at lunch with a friend from class and I was talking about Carol Channing. This person didn’t know who I was talking about. I said she was famous for the Broadway musical “Hello, Dolly!” and he still didn’t know her, so I drew this for him and then he knew exactly who I was talking about. Pictured is a scan of the original napkin drawing.
