Vintage Amateur Original Drawings for Famous Monsters of Filmland Magazine submitted by a boy. Famous Monsters was started in 1958 and ran until 1983 with 191 issues. Later, a revival from 1993 brought it back and it continues today. These drawings were submitted for publication in a "submitted by fans" section of the magazine. While I do not know if any were printed, the editor Forrest J. Ackerman kept this collection for decades in his private collection until passing. There are some 50 drawings which reveal a young talent under the spell of prominent monsters (and monster films) of the 1950s and 1960s.
