    Description

    Jack Kirby - The Recorder Character Design Sketch Original Art (undated). From the fertile imagination of Jack Kirby comes this character design for "the Recorder." In the later years of his career, Kirby worked in the animation field, creating scores of "concept drawings", and this may be one of them. This traveling documentarian comes armed with a set of Kirbytech brass knuckles. Talk about the power of the press -- the man's a walking lawsuit, waiting to happen! The image area of this graphite pencil on paper drawing measures 9.75" x 15", and the art is in Excellent condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
