    Description

    Don Rosa - Gyro Gearloose Sketch "Patent # 93752" Original Art (undated). Created by Carl Barks, Gyro Gearloose has been appearing in comic books for half a century. The eccentric genius creates inventions that are always fabulous, but that sometimes backfire, demonstrating the curse of "unintended consequences." Uncle Scrooge often hires Gyro to solve his money-making production problems, while Donald Duck has been at Gyro's mercy as a "test pilot" on more than one occasion. Gyro relaxes in an anti-gravity hammock with his lemonade, while his ever-industrious helper is hard at work, as usual, this time mowing the lawn. The helper seems to have no fear that Gyro's invention will ever cease to defy gravity. The image area measures 11.5" x 9", and the art is in Excellent condition. Don Rosa signed the art at the lower right. It is an absolute joy to find Gyro finally taking center stage in a piece of original art -- don't miss the chance to add this work of genius to your Disney comic collection!
