    Description

    Carl Barks Cartoon Illustration Original Art Group (c. 1940s). Since the back of one of these two pieces bears an address of "Carl Barks, 4928 Riverton Ave., North Hollywood," these two cartoon drawings were most likely drawn while Barks was working for the Walt Disney Studio as a storyboard artist. The captions read, "The Commandant wants to know if you'd be interested in joining the German Air Force," and "All I can recall about his number is that the sum of the last three digits equaled the square of the first number's cube root." Rendered in graphite and red pencil, these two wonderful piece have a combined image area of 8.25" x 15", and they have been matted to an overall size of 12.25" x 19". In Excellent condition.
