Rusty Riley Original Art - Frank Godwin Patty Rusty Miles:
FRANK GODWIN--RUSTY RILEY ORIGINAL ARTWORK ........June 17, 1955............................Fewer Godwin dailies are being offered these days, and this is an exceptional example. This daily is from the middle of the Madelyn/ Leapin' Leo story. Featured in all panels are the strip's main characters--Rusty, Patty and Miles. The portrait of Miles is in the center panel is strong, and the drawing of Patty holding the duck has charm. But what really makes this strip for me--and made me into a supporter of Godwin's art overall, is the amazing artistic treatment of the fenced in pen to which Madelyn is sentenced. What this guy could do with ink! I've blown up a few details to show the beauty of the rendering on some of this artwork. This is the first Rusty Riley I ever acquired and I've hung on to it for a long time. Frank Godwin was an amazing artist...his work as a book illustrator in classics like Robin Hood, King Arthur and Robinson Crusoe are just as outstanding as his advertising paintings for Texaco, Coca Cola and other major clients. In addition to being a fine painter, he was one of the best pen and ink artists ever. And between all of his accomplishments at the easel and drawing board, he also served as President of the Society of Illustrators. Busy guy! These days, Frank Godwin is best remembered for two exceptional comic strips--Connie and Rusty Riley........Here's a chance to own an excellent example showcasing his skill and craftsmanship at the comics form. There is zip-a-tone and accompanying staining. Otherwise, this a very clean example with excellent art and a board that's in fine
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 excellent response about packaging. To my mind, artwork should be shipped with respect and care. So 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!
