Got a bid in, now to hope for the best of luck.
"Nothing can survive in a vacuum, No one can exist all alone."
I want to make it as available as possible, so I'm startin' ye olde bidding at one penny.
This is the original art for the cover of the fourth Sheldon book, "A Blizzard of Lizards". It's drawn in lightfast, archival inks on heavy, acid-free, Bristol vellum stock. The cardstock itself measures 11" x 14", while the drawn image is roughly 10" x 10".
In a fun twist, I'm also going to be throwing in the initial pencil sketch of the drawing, which was created with pencil on a separate piece of non-archival artist's paper. This is the first time an initial sketch has ever been included with a Sheldon original art offering, I think.
I'm especially pleased with how the final, inked piece came out. Cover art always has that unique quality of being very frame-able — since it was designed to be a cohesive presentation — but this piece is especially cool. I know there's an Arthur or Flaco fan out there who's really gonna dig it. So head on over: The starting bid is only a penny!
Dave it's just beautiful, unfortunately it's something else of yours I'd really like to have and sadly can't afford. I'll try and be really happy for the winner of the auction though...
