    Description

    Sergio Aragones Self-Portrait Original Sketch (2005). Only Sergio Aragones might rival Don Martin for the title of "MAD's Maddest Artist." As much a spontaneous doodler as an accomplished gagman-cartoonist, Aragones has told us of his embarrassed reactions to the occasional autograph-hunter who wanted him to sign her bared cleavage. Here's that very scene, in a brisk and humor-saturated outburst of ink. The provenance is established in the artist's marginal note: A gathering of the National Cartoonists Society, or NCS. Felt marker on Bristol board. Image area, 12" x 9". Excellent condition.
