I met Tom Gill in one my travels up to Westport, CT. starting in the 80's . . I think this drawing was done after a lunch session with Jerry Marcus, Bob Weber and Orlando Busino around 1986 in my trusty sketch pad I carry around ( You never know who you'll bump into ) . Tom had an illustrious career and was one of the artists who drew The Lone Ranger.
Tom passed away in 2005. A truly great talent, and all-around nice guy ! Mike Lynch Blog has some good info on Tom Gill.
