    Description

    S. Clay Wilson "Funk! Smut!" Oversized Sketch Original Art (c. 1970). Bikers, a tattooed broad, a few cans of Tree Frog Beer -- S. Clay Wilson must have been here! This huge piece was drawn for an early showing of Zap Comix art, and later hung in Robert Crumb's Potter Valley home for many years (a photocopy of a 2-page letter from Dana Crumb attesting to this is attached to the back of the 28" x 44" glass-front frame). The art is in faded black marker on a large sheet of illustration board. There is water damage and sun exposure, with a number of tears and cracks in the board. One tear through the lower middle actually splits the art in two. It will still display well, but the condition is Poor. We would not advise taking out of the frame except by a professional restoration specialist, as the frame nicely holds everything together. From the Eric Sack Collection.
