Illustrated people and a probable fan if he was still around.

I'm sorry I don't know who to credit for this illustration. But it ideally meshes Groucho Marx's screen persona and today's strange fixation with illustrating all portions of your body.

I located information regarding the illustrator who painted the Groucho and the illustrated woman. He is:

Mark A. Fredrickson lives in Tucson, Arizona. He attended Tennessee Temple College in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where he studied drawing and photography. He continued his education at the University of Arizona. In his senior year, Mark’s interest shifted from fine art to a career in commercial illustration.After leaving school, Fredrickson worked for The Arizona Daily Star as an editorial artist for over 4 years. When he left the newspaper to pursue free-lance illustration full time, he was already on his way to becoming a significant talent through exposure in national competitions.
Mark’s intensely dramatic and distinctively distorted but realistic style has garnered many awards and has been featured in numerous award publications including Communication Arts Illustration Annuals, Society of Illustrators Annuals, Print, Graphis, Idea, Airbrush Action, Art Directors Annuals, and Hot Air.

Fredrickson is my hero for creating that. You are also my hero for finding it and researching it.
