    Description

    Wally Wood - Sketch Original Art, Group of 2 (undated). Wally Wood's early drawings explored the sex and violence of his id with such glee they can be seen as foreshadowing the Underground comix movement. Wood saved many of his best sketches and ideas in the form of collaged sheets of paper, which he stored in a file cabinet for future reference. This lot contains two such surviving sheets. One features four graphite and color pencil vignettes taped to a sheet (one of these drawings is a self-portrait of Woody at his drawing board). The other piece contains four head reference shots and one Wood pencil sketch portrait. The two sheets have an overall size of approximately 8.5" x 11". Aside from the tape used to secure the pencil sketches on one sheet, and a small piece of paper torn from the lower left corner of the other sheet, the art averages Good condition.
