    Carl Barks Funnyworld #16 "Student Witch" Cover Painting Original Art (Michael Barrier, 1974). Fans of the "censored" pages of Carl Barks' great Donald Duck #26 Halloween story "Trick or Treat" will recognize the big derby-wearing ogre in this painting. The full title, as written on the back, is "Our Student Witch is a Funny Animals Freak," along with the Barks code #3-74. The painting was done specially for Mike Barrier's Funnyworld, the first mainstream magazine devoted exclusively to the world of comics and animation. The painting is in oils on pressboard, measuring 20" x 16"; it's elaborately open-front framed for an overall size of 27.5" x 23.5". In addition to Funnyworld, this wild piece was also featured in the book of Barks non-Disney paintings, Animal Quackers. Painting condition is Excellent.
