Barks cover "Hammocks"

One week ago, the Dutch "complete works of Carl Barks" was issued. 17 books,
black and white, Dutch translation of all Barks stories (except when he did
only the script. The script-only stories will be saved for book 18, that may
appear in 2 years, when and if Daan Jippes has inked them).
Actually, the title of the series is "Donald Duck - Alle Klassieke Verhalen"
("All classic stories"). The price is about 1/4 of the 1990 price of the CBL.

I helped to make sure that *all* Barks material was reprinted. Most of the
covers, sketches, model sheets etc. are copied from The Carl Barks Library.

One cover sketch could not be found in the Library. It is a pencil drawing that
Barks identified as "Hammocks" (Donald and the nephews are hanging one
above another in hammocks).

Dutch editor Thom Roep had an inked version of this cover, inked by Ulrich
Schro"der. He said he didn't have the original Barks pencil. So, the inked
version is published in the 17-books-series.

I would like to have (a copy of) the original Barks pencil drawing.

So, question: does anyone know if that drawing is published somewhere, possibly
in a Scandinavian or German Donaldistic magazine?
(if so, how could I get a copy?)

Thank you for reading this.
