Jay Lynch Original Art. 7 1/2" X 10" Painting. Underground Comix. Surrender?:
This is a 7 1/2 x 10" piece of one-of-a-kind original art. It is painted with Acryla brand acrylic gouache on illustration 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 painting is one I did under a fake name I used for many years, "Kringo." A year or so ago my alternate secret artist identity as Kringo was outed in the comic book industry press, however. So since the jig is up, as they say, I have removed my nom de plume "Kringo" signature on this painting and added my own. This painting has never been printed. It was an idea I had for a poster. An ambiguous political statement that could have applied to Gulf War supporters OR Occupy Wall Street enthusiasts. It could apply to your favorite sports team, or an argument your family has with your next-door neighbor. The interpretation of this work is situational. The interpretation is up to you. It's totally in the eye of the beholder. Oh... one other thing...the turquoise margins are actually equal on all 4 sides...this is a bad scan which appears to show a smaller margin on the right side. Please disregard this. I gotta get a new scanner some day. 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. ----Jay Lynch
