    Description

    Johnny Craig - Vault Keeper Sketch Original Art (undated). Don't ask the Crypt Keeper who he's dug this fresh grave for, ghoul-lunatics -- you might not like his answer! Johnny Craig has rendered a detailed pencil portrait of the Keeper. It was most likely done as a tight preliminary study for one of Craig's fabulous commissioned paintings. Craig was a consummate craftsman, and strove for perfection in all of his works; this drawing is superb. The graphite pencil on vellum sketch has an image area of 8" x 11". There are a few pieces out of the upper edge of the vellum, well outside of the image area; otherwise the art is in Excellent condition. It would be a grave mistake to pass by this sensational sketch!

    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.
