1975 Albert Bigley Spider-Man "Steve Ditko" Art! Stan Lee! MarvelMania!

This was an attempt to draw a "realistic" pencil version of Spider-Man, based on the mid-60s image by Marie Severin (based on Steve Ditko designs). I did NOT have that MarvelMania poster at this time (I'd snag it later in the late 80s), but based my art on the tiny image of said poster seen behind Smilin' Stan Lee, in the pic below right! That snapshot was used in the first Marvel Treasury Edition, from 1974, and I SO fixated on that odd image of Spidey! And the result? This marvelous masterpiece you now enjoy. Click to enlarge!
