"Found this set of Artisan year books from 1935. Has wonderful cartoons from the aspiring cartoonists who traded work for memories. This set has a wonderful 2 page layout by Gus Arriola with two cartoons one of his school sweetheart that he drew and titled my wife. Absolutely wonderful work from long before he penned Gordo.
ORIGINAL ART FOR SALE
Ideally, this page would be a record of all the original art - out of the thosands of pages that were created - that is available. Why are there so few pieces of original art available on the market? And would it really be such a great catastrophe if I came into possession of the two pages I want? *ahem* But I digress.

7/24/82 $89.00 An interesting note from the seller: This strip was published twice. My understanding is that during a period when Arriola was scheduled to be in the hospital, he hand-picked and prepared some of his earlier strips to be reprinted for that brief time when he would be unable to create new strips.. The second printing date is the date shown, the earlier year was removed from the strip, though the month and date are still visible, crossed out in the upper left border: December 11 (as best I can tell).
