Jay Lynch 8"x10" Acrylic Painting. Original Art. Underground Comix. Beatnik Kat For Sale

This is a 8" x 10" piece of one-of-a-kind original art. It is painted in acrylics on a stretched canvas. While I am known for my work on Wacky Packages and Garbage Pail Kids trading cards, this is NOT a character from either of those series. This is a painting of a character I just created. Well..."created" is a harsh word. Actuallly it is a painting of my late friend Dean Natkin who was the model for the "Fulton Natwick" character in the PHOEBE & THE PIGEON PEOPLE comic strip that appeared weekly in THE CHICAGO READER and a bunch of other newspapers for 14 years from the late '70s until the mid '90s. Dean was also the model for R. Crumb's cover to ARCADE magazine #3, the Fall '75 ish. There's a twist, though. In this painting Dean has extra eyeballs and noses that encircle his head, for humorous effect. Why? I do not know. I paint what I feel! I don't analyse it. I will leave that up to the critics. This is not just some commercial job.It is actual fine art! I retain the copyright on the image. Some day I may print it somewhere. I have saved scans of it for this purpose. But if you win this sale, YOU get to own the original painting. Shipping will be free on this item. This is a 3 day sale. Immediate payment is required. Now I am gonna say some other stuff so that people who search the titles and descriptions will wind up on this page. In the late 1960s, I published the first issue of BIJOU FUNNIES, one of the first three so-called "underground comix" ever published. In the pages of BIJOU FUNNIES I published the work of Robert Crumb and Art Spiegelman. In the early days, the underground comix didn't make much dough, so me and Crumb and Spiegelman also did work for Topps bubble gum designing their novelty trading cards. The underground comix were our first love then, though. The gum cards were just something we did to pay the rent. Now almost half a century has passed, and the underground comix are finally recognized as the most important art movement of the latter part of the 20th century. Thus, I have decided in my autumn years to devote more time to serious art which is more reflective of the spirit of the early underground comix, and this painting is a step I have taken in this direction. There is on this sale. Thanks for looking. And again, immediate payment is required. Thank you for looking. ----Jay Lynch
