Here ya go folks! looking for 120. That's 1 day on the road with hotel fuel and food. Some of this stuff is one of a kind you won't see on ebay and amazon. Once this goes into a private collection it may never be seen again. Seeking 120 going once, going twice.........Very proud of this group of fine people  :beerchug:

Here is an action photo of the raw artwork (one of many) in it's protected portfolio.

I have many to choose from, but not that many. After some time, I went completly digital, and so the later cartoons were all done with the magic of digital sketch pads. The paper originals are rendered with sharpie pens so that ink wouldn't spill and cause a crying session at one after midnight when the art was due.

I can literaly wallpaper my house with all the cartoons I've done over the years. Now, everything is save on a hard drive and backed up.

$120!

That's 104.4 Euros -- which is approx two tanks of petrol at your average German refueling station!

Dan,

Congratulations and bla, bla, bla...

In addition to winning a certified signed copy of the world famous Road Rash motorcycle cartoon book, is there a certain cartoon strip that you wanted to hang as a trophy, and if so, did you want it colorized?

P.S. Don't forget to slip the auctioneer a five spot or a beer, or something.

Hey Harry,
Thanks for the follow up. If it's not too much trouble -- I would love a custom colorized cartoon strip.

Not sure which might be available, but one that lived in my memory and I thought of frequently when I was on my OtP tag-along was the "Ride-Eat-Sleep-Repeat" strip. I loved that the rider did his sleeping on a picnic table -- not too different from our sleeping arrangement in France (or was that Germany??)

If that one's not available, I also really liked an older one that was all about hazards in a mountain pass the "the mountain letting you pass" or the one where the RV breaks down and the C10 comes off the trailer to tow the RV home (had a few of those types of trips myself).

They're all good-uns, so appreciate your work and support for the "cause".

Cheers,
Dan

That's perfect!

Not to be prescriptive or throw up guardrails on your creative license, but sure would be cool if the C10 was wineberry -- like my '94...

Thanks Harry!

Finally finished up this OTP auction prize for Dan. Thought you might like to see it. Camera does not do it any justice.

I don't normally do this kind of thing. As a matter of fact, this is the first time I went back to a cartoon to add color. Usually, it's the other way around. I add color first, then ink it.

It's a scary process. One mistake and it's toast. Put the color down too thick and heavy, there is no fixing it.
On the computer, if you make a mistake, you just hit "CTRL-Z", and the computer un-doos any damage you happen to make.
There is no un-do with watercolor and paper. You build up the color as light as you can get it, and gradually add to it.

Proceeded with a lot of caution and practice on other paper. It's been a long time since I worked with water color and paper.

So Dan, sorry for being so late and all. It's in the mail.
