Stephan Pastis "Pearls Before Swine" Early Original Comic Strip Art 1/23/02
"Pearl's Before Swine" Original Comic Strip Art
by Writer/Artist/Creator/Comic Rock Star Stephan Pastis
This is a rare opportunity to own an original comic strip/piece of original artwork by Stephan Pastis. This piece is even more unique in that its publication date was 1/23/02, just 3 short weeks after the now hit comic was first published in the Washington Post on 12/31/01.
Stephan Pastis is a 2013 Reuben Award nominee. The Reuben award is the most coveted award among cartoonist and the winner is considered to be the Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year. This years winner will be determined on May 25th.
"Pearls" original pieces are never offered to the public. The only noted public sell of any Pastis' original art took place last summer. It was a piece from a 2012 Cul De Sac book and it sold for $2900. And I believe that piece was offered up by Pastis himself. This piece comes from a fellow comic strip artist and a person that knows Pastis. You can see where the piece was personalized in the bottom left corner.
This is the ultimate "Pearls" item to own. It is signed twice by Pastis and is in great condition. The piece measures 17" x 5.75" The publication date is in the top left corner. There is some some slight fraying on the bottom left of the piece but it appears to be from where the paper was cut. The "Best Wishes" personalization on the bottom left can easily be concealed behind a mat in the framing process.
This piece features Pig and a "monkey trainer in the traveling circus."
The actual piece is shown in the pictures. Please click on the pictures to enlarge them for viewing.
