Holly & Wally “Rain”

This week’s color drawing.. and possible future t-shirt graphic.. features Holly and Wally helping each other to stay dry. Yeah, I know..  It doesn’t rain in Endtown.  This is an ink and color pencil drawing on archival bristol board and should last for years and years.. Measures about 8×10″.

Starting bid: $30

The original color vignette this week is entitled “Chase” and has been drawn by request.. and we all know how this ends..  All right, so I’m pandering.. BIG DEAL!  This may or may not be the version of this drawing that will eventually become a T-shirt graphic.

Endtown 07/18/11 – 08/31/11

First up for auction this week is this double-sided Endtown original for the days July 18 and August 31, 2011.  In the July 18th installment, Holly uses an uncharacteristic (well, maybe) double-entendre and embarrasses herself in front of her coworkers.  Poor Holly..

On the reverse is the artwork for the August 31st installment featuring the first appearance of Petey on Gocomics.  Actually, the bottom two panels were redrawn entirely before “publication” and depict a couple of potential recruits for Flask’s suicide mission that didn’t make the grade; a chihuahua.. and a bee.  Ah, well.. I’ll get around to inectoid mutants eventually.

My color original for this week.. and the only item up for auction this time around.. is this character study of Holly doing her sexy (well, I think so) “play scold”.  Vintage bottle of Donald Duck Cola shown for scale.  Holly is drawn in pen, ink, and colored pencils on acid-free, archival bristol board. Please give this mouse a good home, won’t you?

 Starting Bid: $30

Flask pinup

The one pinup that I drew for Anthrocon that I was certain would sell turned out to be the only one that didn’t sell!  Go figure.. Well, their loss is your gain.  (Vintage bottle of Kickapoo Joy Juice shown for scale.)  Please give my psychotic cat woman a good home.

Starting Bid: $30

Endtown 3/17/10 – 3/18/10

Two rather elaborately detailed Endtown strips from the original moderntales.com run.  Al and Gustine accidentally dislodging a precariously balanced office building in the “Flapjack City”.

Endtown 1/17/11 – 1/18/11


(Front)

The very first appearance of Wally Wallechinsky in Endtown.  The reverse features the second appearance of Wally Wallechinsky in Endtown.  This is also the very first Endtown strip to appear on Gocomics.  As always, the dialogue has been scribbled into the blank area above the drawings.  At the time I drew this, I had no clue that he would be taking over the spotlight as the strip’s central character.

Welcome to the Endtown Auction Block

Hey, folks.. Welcome to the Endtown Auction Block.. I’m trying out something new here that, with luck and effort, will work out nicely for everyone concerned.. For YOU, dedicated Endtown reader, because it will make my original artwork available and affordable.. for ME, because I need the money.. and for YOU, because that money helps me to continue bringing you Endtown three days a week.. So, you see, you’re getting the better of the deal.. lol..

Once a week, I’ll be auctioning off five original drawings; four actual Endtown strips and one color pinup or vignette.  All artwork is drawn in archival ink on acid-free bristol board and should last.. well.. for ages.. As money has been extremely tight and bristol board is an expensive commodity, I’ve been drawing strips on both sides of each sheet, so you’ll be getting twice the artwork for whatever you may pay for an Endtown original.. although how you might want to display it is a dilemma I leave up to you.  These originals aren’t perfect, of course.. There’s the occasional splash of liquid paper or smudge.. They’re all absolutely one of a kind, though, and if you want to see the creative process in action, well, here it is..
The color vignettes are single-sided and are drawn in ink and high-quality color pencils.. Sizes, themes, and characters will vary from week to week.  I’ll do my best to make sure that all of these color drawings will look good on the wall of an office or bedroom regardless of one’s knowledge of Endtown. I understand that most people want something nice that they won’t have to pull off the wall before grandma comes over.
Here’s what you need to know:
1. All drawings offered up for auction on this site are originals – no copies, lithos or cheap laser prints.
2. In general, the bidding for each drawing will run 7 days, starting Monday morning and ending Friday at midnight, CST.  If bidding does not clear the minimum bid, then that panel won’t be sold, and will be rotated back into the backstock.

  • Post a comment to the currently active auction.
  • In the comment, write the amount of your bid.  (Minimum $1 increments, please.)

Okay..  Fingers crossed..  And please understand that this does help keep Endtown afloat.  And even if you don’t see anything you’re interested in this week, or you just don’t need any original art, there’s a handy donation button located at the top of the page.  Every bit helps.  Thank you.. 🙂
