    Description

    Otto Messner - Original Back Cover Art for Felix the Cat Winter Annual #2 (Toby Press, 1954). Otto Messner is synonymous with the black cat, Felix, having carried the character from film, to comic strips and onward into comic books. This back cover art is classic Felix, drawn by Messner during a particularly creative streak for Toby Press. The overall art size is 14" x 22" with a 12" x 18" image area. The work is in great condition with some very slight aging along the edges and some printer notations along the top and bottom edges.
