"BATTLESTAR GALACTICA - COLONIAL SCARAB" BOX ORIGINAL ART.
16-1/8x21.25" heavy Charlotte artboard w/brown paper overlay features original art used on the box of the "Colonial Scarab" vehicle produced by Mattel as part of their popular 1978 "Battlestar Galactica" toyline. Mixed media art by Otto Kuhni, who worked from the 1960s until his death in 2017, including some projects for Mattel that predate his involvement w/Hot Wheels (for which he is predominantly known) in 1967 and the "Battlestar Galactica" toyline in the 1970s. Art features Scarab on planet's surface, cockpit raised to meet to two Cylon Raider ships flying above, w/star-filled bkg. showing two planets in bkg. Image area measures 15x19.75" and margins have some printer marks. Artboard has some corner tip wear and scattered margin aging and is Fine/VF overall, but art remains bright, clean and would display NM if matted and framed. See AFA graded Colonial Scarab (item #2047) and box proof (item #2046). In our last auction, we sold the original art for the Cylon Raider box for $8,782. 1970s action figure and related packaging original art is highly sought after and rarely comes up for sale, and this is the last Battlestar Galactica art provided by our consignor. A must for the "Battlestar Galactica" fan. From the Kuhni Estate.

DICK TRACY FAMOUS ARTISTS SYNDICATE ORIGINAL ART MOCK AD CAMPAIGN LOT.
Beginning in the 1930s, Sam Gold was instrumental in convincing advertising agencies and ad departments of major companies to use comic characters in their merchandising. The five following lots of original art were created for that purpose in the 1940s. Gold and Al Leowenthal (the head of Famous Artists Syndicate) were close friends. Leowenthal's artists created this art and sent it to Gold. The first lot was used by Gold to create direct mail pieces showing how FAS characters could be used in a typical merchandising campaign. The other four lots (two title characters per sheet) were used much in the way a style guide would be used to introduce the various main characters and their associated characters to ad agencies that might want to utilize the characters as a tie-in w/client's product. This first lot features Dick Tracy and cast. Four 11x21" thin artboards w/India ink original art, each artboard featuring two or three distinct scenes w/text in blue or lead pencil. First artboard features Chief telling Tracy that Sam Gold is missing; they round up suspects; Pat Patton pulls Gold's file from the "File Of Prominent People." Second artboard features Dick Tracy and Chief grilling villains Flattop; w/Tracy talking to Shakey, Itchy, BB Eyes and Gravel Gertie w/B.O. Plenty; Pat Patton theorizes Gold's disappearance may be due to amnesia. Third artboard features Tracy and Tracy Jr. visiting Vitamin Flintheart to ask about Gold, w/Flintheart going on TV to help find Gold. Fourth artboard features Tracy informing Flintheart that Gold has been found and they celebrate at restaurant w/Chief and Tracy Jr. Last image shows Pat using his Two Way Wrist Radio to let Tracy know Gold is on his way. Each artboard comes w/accompanying negative image photosats of the art. Boards have slightest traces of aging at top/bottom margins as one tape together, but art remains clean and Exc. Unique lot. This and the following four lots (#2220-2223) are among the most interesting and detailed of any Gold original art items we have offered over the years. From the archives of premium creators Sam & Gordon Gold and comes with LOA.

Pair of 11.25x17" artboard w/pen and ink original art for two-page spread in "Milk And Cheese" #1, published by Slave Labor Graphics in 1991.

Upon the bailiff asking the court to rise, both Milk & Cheese shout "Guilty! Guilty! Oh, He's Guilty As Sin!!!" to which the judge calls for order (w/a sneaky joke mixed in from the bailiff). Every time the judge moves the trial along, Milk & Cheese have loud outbursts, from calling the first witness names to calling said witness a liar while he's sworn in.
