Virgil VIP Partch: Color TRUE Illustrations

My friend Ger Apeldoorn shares some long-unseen illustrations and color work from TRUE Magazine by then-cartoon editor Virgil VIP Partch.

Brilliant. It's Mad Men: The Cartoon! I love Virgil Partch's work, he just draws funny.

OMG! I grew up [late 50's] sneaking looks at my dad's True, Argosy and Saga magazines to see the cartoons--and have loved VIP ever since. Thanks for this!

I'm not positive, but I think that Ger Apeldoorn's statement about VIP being Cartoon Editor of True is not accurate.
As I remember, the Cartoon Editor was always Bill McIntyre. Bill was great friends with VIP and when he finally retired he went to California to join VIP in a business enterprise.
At least that's how I recall it.
