    Description

    George Herriman - Krazy Kat Specialty Illustration Original Art (undated). What a "family" portrait! George Herriman's beloved Krazy Kat characters line up to say "Helloi Lady!" in this charming ink and watercolor on Bristol board illustration. From left to right, that's Joe Turkil (we think), Gooseberry Sprig, Offisa Bull Pupp (billy club in hand), Water Cephus Austrige (with Ignatz Mouse resting on one of his feet), Joe Stork (with his bundle by his side), and Krazy Kat, holding a red parasol. The artboard measures 8" x 10"; the extreme edges have darkened from an old framing, and there is old masking tape attached to the reverse side that extends out (also from framing), but the subtle green and brown background colors and crisp black inks are still sharp; Very Good overall condition. A lovely piece, signed and inscribed as from "Geo Herriman and Ko. [company]". Despite there being not a brick in sight, we believe any Coconino County fan will go coo-coo over this!
