    George Herriman "Mikko Kauppi" Specialty Illustration Original Art (1936). That George Herriman is one krazy kat to be sure! This drawing was a thank you to "'Mikko' Kauppi -- Finland's Best Bench Builder - From 'Ole Man Herriman - June 1936". Herriman is best-known for his long-running surreal comic strip Krazy Kat, and some of these dawgs and kittahs bear that influence. Created in ink and gouache over graphite on Bristol board with an area of 9.5" x 11.5". There are two pinholes in the upper left and the board is toned and has been sunstruck from a previous framing. Signed and personalized in the lower image area. In Very Good condition.
