I have a copy of the fisherman and I was wondering if it was mass produced for sale. Thank you, Anne Deyo.

Dear Anne, it was a plotter drawing, reproduced in magazines quite often. I cannot tell you from knowing, only guessing: the drawing will most likely exist in various copies, probably in slight variations. Whether it was mass-produced, is not easy to answer. If it was, then in printing and not in repeatedly running it off the plotter. By the time, there was not a market for this kind of images. But quite likely that through CalComp, some interest was sparked. Frieder
