    Description

    Robert Crumb - Devil Girl Choco Bar Box Illustration Original Art (Kitchen Sink, 1993). Robert Crumb's fiendish creation Devil Girl actually had her own line of candy bars in the 1990s. Can you imagine a candy product with a slogan like "It's Bad For You" selling in stores today? They were churned out in droves, and snatched up by eager fans of Crumb, kids wanting to be "bad," and nearsighted patrons with a sweet tooth. The candy bars were displayed in a "cigar" box covered with cool Crumb illustrations of our favorite demoness, including this piece, which originally graced the inside front cover. Drawn in thick black lines, it's a tight rendering done in Crumb's most professional style. The art is drawn on a 8.25" x 6.25" piece of bristol board; with an image area approximately 6" x 5"; it's signed and dated at the bottom. White-out use is pretty extensive, but overall, the piece 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.
