    Ripping Friends Concept Art Animation Drawing and Folder Group of 4 (Spümco, 2001-2002). Muscle-bound madness from the mind of John Kricfalusi (creator of Ren Stimpy). Here we have a concept piece for the "Pinch Machine" from the episode "The Man From Next Thursday" (which first aired 1-19-2002), and two concept pieces for a seeming unmade episode titled "Crag Takes a Magic Pea". These pure graphite masterpieces are created on 16 field 3-peghole animation paper, and are housed in an official Spümco Ripping Friends production folder (originally for the episode "Infernal Wedding"). Given the "Dorman Designs" designation, it is possible these are all from the hand of John Dorman, a storyboard artist for the series. Dorman passed away in 2011. The original art has minor wrinkles and some pinholes, and is in Very Good condition. The folder has a rip and is in Good condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
