    Description

    Bil Keane The Family Circus Daily Single-Panel Comic Strip Original Art dated 7-7-80 (Register & Tribune Syndicate, 1980). Keane's masterwork, The Family Circus, distilled all his many years of cartoon and wordplay experience (as in The Saturday Evening Post) into a sustained continuity about a household of glib, resourceful kids and their often befuddled parents. Here, daughter Dolly gives out with a classic bit of Existential double-talk -- not so much a calculated gag, as a replica of a child's charming misperceptions of how the world works. Subtle body-language puts across the point. Inscribed by the artist. Ink on Bristol board. Image area, 8" x 9.5". Excellent condition.
