Cavegirl Art 13: Coppertone cavegirl

Here is a nice take on Joyce Ballantyne's famous advertisement for Coppertone by Korean born artist Frank Cho (or Dyuk Hyun Cho, to give him his real name).  She isn't really a cavegirl, as can be seen by her knife, but is Cho's Jungle Girl character who often seems to interact with dinosaurs.  Any why not?

Balantyne was paid $2,500 for this painting for the Coppertone advertisement in 1959 and used her daughter Cheri as the model.
