    Description

    Paul Mavrides - Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers Illustration Original Art (1992). Paul Mavrides and those Three Stooges of the hippie set, Fat Freddy, Phineas Phreak, and Freewheelin' Franklin, aka the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers, lampoon the well known anti-drug commercial, "This is your brain on drugs." Mavrides worked his mojo in the comix, Young Lust, Anarchy Comix, and Rip Off Comix. Later, he collaborated with Gilbert Shelton and Dave Sheridan on the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers stories, and Mavrides was also one of the founders of the satirical "Church of the SubGenius." Mavrides recounted his freaky collaboration with Gilbert Shelton, "With me and Gilbert we both write and draw the strip, although there have been variations here and there on that. At one point me and Sheridan were drawing it and me and Gilbert were writing it, sometimes me and Gilbert would write the story and he'd draw it all, sometimes I'd come up with an idea and draw it up myself." This pen and ink masterpiece's image area measures approximately 7.25" x 11", and the art is in Excellent condition. To paraphrase the brothers, "Comic art will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no comic art," so place your bid today.
