Art Auction: "Dolled Up"


View larger image

"Dolled Up" is in our book Black & White World II and was originally posted on September 6, 2003. The dialogue in this cartoon may seem somewhat outrageous, but it was taken from an actual statement on a Saudi religious police Web site: "Jewish Barbie dolls, with their revealing clothes and shameful postures, accessories and tools are a symbol of decadence to the perverted West. Let us beware of her dangers and be careful."

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 reverse side features another of John's drawings, this one a large ink sketch of a caricature for the religious police. The drawing is approximately 5" x 6".

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 28, at 3:00pm CST.

UDPATE -- June 28: Bidding for this cartoon is closed. Thanks to the bidders, and our congratulations to Bary for the winning bid.

Our next and final auction (for the time being) is being postponed until after the July 4th holiday. Please check back next week.

Funny stuff. I saw something similar at Jihad Watch not long ago, where the title was something like 'no freedom in islam', and rather than being an editorial they wrote, it was a quote from a jihadi site!
