    Robert Crumb - Original Sketches (1962). This is page 104 of one of Robert Crumb's early sketchbooks, and it's listed as such on one side of this 6.5" x 8.5" sheet of notepad paper. Robert penciled these sketches around the time he was seventeen, and it's an interesting slice of his life at the time. One image shows young Crumb sitting on some steps sighing, "Go get the pills." Other drawings include a bird with a bow tie, a small sketch of Crumb's neighborhood, and some other random doodles including a dandelion and a vintage car. This piece measures 6.5" x 8.5" with art flowing to most edges. The paper is slightly tan, but 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.
