Camera-ready comic art drawing for Tiffany Jones

Description (Brief)
This pen-and-ink drawing prepared for the Tiffany Jones comic strip shows the title character beaming about becoming recognized shortly before she meets up with boyfriend Guy. The drawing includes the date "11-26" and is presumed to date from about 1966.
British comic artist Patricia Tourret (1929- ) attended the Harrow Art School in London before she started her career as a freelance illustrator. In collaboration with writer Jenny Butterworth, Tourret created the comic strip Tiffany Jones for British newspapers the Daily Sketch and the Daily Mail. The strip was internationally syndicated. Tourret also illustrated for children’s and educational books.
Tiffany Jones (1964-1977) was a comic strip about the adventures of a model who also happened to work as a secret agent. The character's good looks enabled her to easily retrieve information from the enemy. The strip-to-film adaptation debuted in 1973.
