DescriptionLeslie Cabarga (attributed) Bugs on Skates Preliminary Original Art (c. 1980s). Two roller-skating insects of the species Buggus Cartoonicus enliven this conceptual miniature from a master at emulating Depression-era styles. Cabarga's Underground Comix origins (1970s) inform such post-comix work as this in manifold ways. This piece is a preliminary for a greeting-card or stationery design. The characters are modeled after the Mr. Bug Goes to Town figures of the old-school Fleischer Bros. studio. Ink and white watercolor over graphite on vellum. Image area, 6" x 6". Excellent condition. From the Eric Sack Collection.
