    Victor Olson On The Punchy Side and Storytime Preliminary Illustration Original Art (undated). Two nice works by the incredibly talented painter, Victor Olson. These were prelims for painting he would produce. First there is On The Punchy Side with its very nice design work. The lady's head has been pasted over and redrawn. There is some whiteout corrections in places. The drawing is on very thin paper, and had been affixed to thicker illustration paper at one point (labeled "on the punchy side" across the top edge). The art has since come loose. Edges are brittle and brown but the image area of 14.5" x 19.5" is not affected. The second piece features a mother reading to her children produced in detailed graphite on paper with an image area of 20" x 21". There is a good deal of edge wear (especially on the right hand side), corner pinholes, and a dark discoloration down the left hand side. There is also a horizontal fold about two-thirds the way down the page, and a slight crease in the top. Both are in Good condition.
