1st Year Carol Day Original Comic Art 282 - David Wright For Sale
Carol Day David Wright had a facility for drawing women that quickly caught the eye of both agents and clients, so the man who had aspired to be a technical illustrator, by the outbreak of World War II became Great Britain's foremost pin-up artist. His pictures of beautiful women came to be called “lovelies” and were an immensely popular feature of "The Sketch". He later became highly sought after fashion illustrator and then comic artist........................... Wright's brilliance at drawing and storytelling art permeates every frame of Carol Day, his comic strip masterpiece featured in The Daily Mail, which he worked on until his passing in 1967. He would pencil just enough to establish the positions of his characters, then go directly into the art with a #2 sable brush. When this was finished, he would begin the process of building the complex and varied layers of ink textures and cross hatching that described the final image in a sort of visual tone feast. Prior to the last 2 years of the strip, he eschewed the American comics method of glued down zipatone in favor of hand creating these rich surface textures..................This is an exceptional first year daily from the Dangerous Currents story. The art has something rare in this fine British strip--three outstanding panels. It features fine shaded portraits of Nora Lovell and Commander Black in the third panel, it opens with a strong drawing of Carol in a boat with his son Edward Black, and the middle panel is a stunning backlit rendering of the boat in water--one of the very best panels of its kind in the strip. This is easily one of the nicest Carol Days I've offered on . The art is noted in the top border as being for "Wed. August 7" (1957). As with all Carol Days, this art is drawn on illustration board. Both the image and board are in excellent condition. There is some white out in word balloon borders (see scans), but other than that the art is in top shape..........................
Shipping and handling with the USA is $10 and shipping to Great Britain and Europe is $21.00 for First Class (no tracking) or $35.00 for Global Priority (with tracking). My apologies for the high price for Global Priority, but costs have risen significantly over the past months. Payment is to be made within 7 days of the conclusion of the sale....Good luck offerding!
