Who was this artist?

I'm an illustrator looking for more material from an artist whose work I admire. The problem is -- I don't know his/her name.

I have in my resource files an old copy of a one-shot magazine called THE BAR AND PARTY GUIDE, published back in 1972 from Sirkay Publishing in LA CA. Sirkay is better known as the publisher of a bunch of soft-core photomags like Knight, Adam
, and so on. Here's their page on vintagegirliemags.com
The Bar and Party Guide has some nifty 2-color half-tone cartoon illustrations by an uncredited hand. They're really good, to my eye. Sirkay presented guys like Bill Ward, but this isn't Ward. It's a real long-shot for me to ask this question here, but I'm hoping some knowledgeable MeFite will be able to tell me a) who this guy/gal was, and b) whether or not there is more of his/her work available.
If you want I will scan in and post some of the drawings.
