not one of Rockwell's finer offerings

(LIFE Magazine, October 31, 1949. Personally I don't think this is supposed to be a Halloween-themed ad. Just coincidentally spooky.)

Not one of his finer....? That is a perfectly fine portrayal of a creepy alcoholic man!

This looks like it was done on coquille board. I've always wanted to do something on coquille board. Of course I don't know how to spell coquille board. I cut and pasted it from Google. Later, if I try to spell it again, I will not remember how. Because I have spelling Alllshimers. Also it just doesn't tend to come up.
