Hack Smith On Hippy Hill

This is a panel from a painted cartoon, Hippy Hill, credited to Hack Smith (1952 – 1997), one of my numerous imaginary artistic personalities. Smith, a “primitive folk cartoonist” from Occidental, CA, created Hippy Hill for a radical weekly tabloid back in 1970, telling the tale of a local obscenity bust on a group of young hippies caught picking blueberries in the nude. You can see one of Smith's very last cartoons, commenting on the Gulf War, in Fantagraphics Books' The Bush Junta.
