"Not only is it bionic - it's got a six-function memory as well."

Captioned by Roy in pencil and signed 'Raymonde rough' in ink.

This is a preliminary cartoon drawn by the late Playboy cartoonist, Roy Raymonde.

Roy sent these off to Playboy in USA during 1972 - 2002 as one of the top original cartoonists for the magazine.

The artwork is in excellent condition, sketched with Indian Ink and painted with watercolour. The colours are still very vibrant as the cartoons have been kept in a dark storage until now. The paper does show natural signs of aging and ware but very little. Please see the images for more details or feel free to message us with any questions.

We are the Raymonde family who have been through the studio recently to discover Roy's fabulous Playboy artwork. Visit for more info.

***Please note the preliminary work is not being sold for commercial reproduction and copyright belongs to the Raymonde family.
