Art Auction: "White House Alert"


View larger image

"White House Alert" is in our book Black & White World II and was originally posted on January 23, 2004. It was our take on Howard Dean's infamous Iowa scream. 

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. Occasionally John will doodle a pencil sketch on the reverse side of an original, but in the case he inked a character study for a futuristic detective called FLEX. The drawing is approximately 4" x 5.5".

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 21, at 3:00pm CST.

UDPATE -- June 21: Bidding for this cartoon is closed. Thanks to all bidders, and our congratulations to Guruh Roy for the winning bid.

Our next original cartoon is up for bids: Art Auction: "Dolled Up"

Do I get a discount if I point out the misspelling in the cartoon, or are you going to pretend it was one of GWB's malapropisms?

man, what do you comments on the release of Abu Bakar Bashir in Indonesia. He seems comdemned the White House too.
By the way the cartoon is great.

Jaime ... Great catch. We take full credit for that typo. And we're not even going to charge extra for it.

(By the way, that's John's favorite word to misspell, and apparently it's my favorite word to not proofread.)
