Dan DeCarlo and Rudy Lapick - Original Cover Art to Archie's Girls Betty and Veronica #163 (Archie Comics, 1969).
This groovy cover is straight from the swingin' Sixties! Produced in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area measuring 14" x 13" inches. The original art has been trimmed to the borders. The logo is a recent replacement copy, added for presentation purposes. Tanned, but in Very Good condition.

During this time period, Archie's method for producing their covers was to draw the new art on a separate board like this, then paste it onto their cover template that they used over and over again.

Please note the comic book images are provided as reference, and is not sold with the artwork. The artwork is in very good condition. 

Dan DeCarlo (December 12, 1919 – December 18, 2001) 
Beginning his career at Archie in the mid 1950s, DeCarlo is best known as the artist who developed the look of Archie Comics in the late 1950s and early 1960s, modernizing the characters to their contemporary appearance and establishing the publisher's house style up until his death. DeCarlo drew every character in the Archie pantheon at one time or another, but it is his outstanding work on Betty and Veronica that he is held in such high regard for. 

Art collectors seek out original artwork from DeCarlo’s best period artistically, which is the mid 1950’s to the early 1970s. Artwork from this period is highly sought after and steadily rising in value.
