    Simon Bisley - Bisley's Scrapbook #1 Complete 6-page Story, "Once Upon a Time in the West" Original Art (1990). Published in 1993, Atomeka's Bisley's Scrapbook contained a tale considered by some fans to be the best of the Mad Brit's work to date. That story is our offering in this lot, a six page wild Western saga (written with Alan Grant) of murder, mayhem, and mistaken identity, done in a style Sergio Leone would surely appreciate. The art is completely painted in that unusual intensive style that could only be by the Biz; all type elements are on an acetate overlay. The splattered colors extend beyond the panel borders to the page edges; the pages measure approximately 14.75" x 20.5" with image areas of 11.75" x 18". The last art board is actually two story pages, with an image area of 7.25" x 10.5". The art appears to be mixed media including acrylics, watercolor, and ink, with acetate overlays on bristol. All pages are in Excellent condition.
