This was done by Canadian illustrator Allan Mardon.

Born in Welland and raised in Sarnia, Ontario, he became a fine art painter of large-scale work with subjects relating to American myths and history including Indian battles and cavalry such as Wounded Knee.

He took his art training at the Ontario College of Art, the Edinburgh School in Scotland, and the Slade School in London. He then returned to Canada and set up a studio in Toronto from where he did free-lance illustration which became much in demand. An early job in the U.S. was with "Sports Illustrated," and he moved to Connecticut to be closer to that work. He also did illustration for "McCalls," "The Ladies Home Journal," "Redbook," "Time," and "National Geographic" as well as large corporations including Exxon and American Express.

Much of his major work has a primitive style similar to Grant Wood and Grandma Moses.

On a side note, has anyone seen him recently? Dude is still a beast, still crushing distance . I wish I was in that good shape now, let alone in 30 years.
