Jay Lynch 8"x10" Acrylic Painting. Original Art. Underground Comix. Crazy Robot:
This is an 8" x 10" piece of one-of-a-kind original art. It is painted in acrylics on a canvas board. 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 created solely for this painting which I have titled "Le Colombaire Electrique." It's neurotic! It's robotic! SteamPunk enthusiasts will enjoy its subtle humor, as will art enthusiasts marvel over its great artistic beauty! 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
