Pencil art

Image size is about 5" x 7" on 6" x 9" tracing paper. Scan shows entire paper.

The main pencil lines have been traced over in ballpoint pen, when the artist transferred the image to bristol board for painting.

These original pencil drawings and acrylic color roughs were done by John Pound prior to painting the finished GARBAGE PAIL KIDS art. (1980's final GPK art is not available. Some later GPK final paintings are available here.) They are one of a kind, subject to availability, and signed by the artist. Includes Certificate of Authenticity.

Pencil artworks range from $450. and up.
Color roughs range from $950. and up.
