When we started our weekly art auctions in May, we said there would be at least six. We postponed the final auction because of the July 4th holiday, so this auction is it (for the time being).
"Holy Land" is in our book Black & White World II and was created in February 2003 before we even launched this Web site. Eventually we posted the cartoon under the title "Road Map Sign". Unfortunately the topic of war and terror in the Middle East is not one that has faded in relevance.
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 original art does not have the gray shading on the sign (added with a computer) as on the final cartoon.
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 Tuesday, July 25, at 3:00pm CST.
UDPATE -- July 25: Bidding for this cartoon is closed. Our congratulations and thanks to Nick for his bid.
As I said at the beginning of this post, this will be our last auction until sometime later this year. Again, thanks to everyone who bid and to those who purchase our original artwork.Posted by Forkum at July 19, 2006 08:16 PM
