Art Auction: "Dutch"


View larger image

"Dutch" is in our book Black & White World II and was originally posted exactly two years ago today on June 7, 2004 to commemorate the death of Ronald Reagan. 

The 9" x 6.5" ink illustration is on a 11" x 7" acid-free bristol board (the black border is not part of the illustration). John and I have signed the front in pencil. The major difference between the original and the final was the deletion of the dialogue balloon (seen here for the first time).

The starting bid is $250. Bidding takes place in the comment section below in increments of at least $10. Buyer pays shipping in addition to the winning bid amount, and the shipping method is buyer's choice (e.g, Priority Mail, FedEx overnight, etc.). Payment can be made via PayPal or directly to us.

Auction ends Wednesday, June 14, at 3:00pm CST.

UDPATE -- June 14: Bidding for this cartoon is closed. Thanks to the many who participated in this auction, and our congratulations to Stephanie for the winning bid.

Our next original cartoon is up for bids: Art Auction: "White House Alert"

Wish I could afford this one

I knew this was going to be a popular one. Has anybody said "Thank you" for auctioning these? I will. Thank You! I may not win it, but it is great that someone will own it. I would love to give this to my wife. Reagan is one of her heros.

I would love to get in on this. One of my first non-family memories is RR talking about the Challenger explosion.

Gentlemen, this is one to be proud of.

Wish I could afford it. Best president in my lifetime and probably the 20th century.

Any chance of an unsigned copy rather than a signed one?

Dutch made us all proud again. $440

I'm an F-16 pilot. I'd like to buy the 8 Jun 2006 panel commemorating the death of Zarqawi. Thanks.
