Superb Carol Day Original Comic Art 459 - David Wright For Sale

Superb Carol Day Original Comic Art 459 - David Wright

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 is an early daily from theSeconds Out!story, about Carol's romance with a professional Americanboxer. The art was published in 1957, so it's both an early piece--and one from a seldom offered story. The art features portraits of Carol, Nora, Gene and Paul out to a concert for the evening.The daily shows the aftermath of a fight. PaulEgan's cousin, boxer Gene Miller, has just flattened a man who had been hitting on Carol. As with all Carol Days, this art is drawn on illustration board. Both the image and board are in excellent condition. There is some minor white out use in the piece and word balloons are pasted down in this one. There is also a smudge a a couple of short surface tears along the right border (see scans). But other than that the art is in top
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. And I've gotten a lot of good response about packaging. To my mind, artwork should be shipped with respect. So included in the shipping cost: each piece of art is first sealed in a waterproof bag, then secured to $2.25 worth of reinforced cardboard bound by professional packing tape..................Payment is to be made within 7 days of the conclusion of the sale....Good luck offerding!
