Three by Don Ivan Punchatz

The first two illustrations are from Playboy‘s January 1972 issue, the third from its October 1971 issue. We start with a dystopian future, then move on to Arthur C. Clarke speaking for technology and G. Gordon Liddy speaking for botany and scenic views. No, wait, that last fellow is the unsavory Alan Watts representing spirituality. Back then Playboy would hash out the big issues by means of full-page illos and well-known bylines, a habit I think it has since dropped.

You all know Don Ivan Punchatz (1936-2009). Per Wiki, he designed the logo and box art for the video game Doom.
