Description

    Arthur Suydam Tarzan #2 Cover Painting Original Art (Dark Horse, 1996). An original painting by the man most often associated with his own series, Mudwogs, and other works that ran in Heavy Metal, Epic Illustrated, and many other places. This piece is as gorgeous as it is deadly with the giant spider menacing Tarzan and his ape friend. It is produced in ink and watercolor over graphite on illustration paper with an image area of 16" x 15". The paper has been affixed to a 19" x 17" Bristol board. There is slight bubbling where the paper has been affixed to the board, and the board is creased horizontally through the image area. Overall in Very Good condition. Comes with a printed copy of the comic book.

    Condition Report*:

    Board measures 17 x 19 inches; there appears to be a horizontal crease through the center of the work as well as minor bubbling in lower half of work due to technique used to lay down work to board.  Not framed.
