    Description

    Robert Crumb "Pappy Cat/School Notes" Sketchbook Page Original Art (1961). After graduating high school, Robert Crumb took a few art courses, and on this sketchbook page, he took some notes in class. Along with the notes, the compulsive doodler added several penciled images of a house cat, looking very similar to one called Pappy in an early story, "Cat Life" (which finally saw print in The Complete Crumb Comics Volume One). There are several more small sketches, including one of Fritz in a high collar and tie, plus birds and human faces. The page measures approximately 5.25" x 8", and has been professionally "skimmed" from the reverse side and backed with archival paper. Very Good condition.
