2nd Week Carol Day Art #14 September 1956 David Wright
Had a facility for drawing women that quickly caught the eye of both agents and clients, so the man who had aspired to be a technical illustrator, by the outbreak of World War II became Great Britain's foremost pin-up artist. His pictures of beautiful women came to be called â"lovelies" and were an immensely popular feature of. He later became highly sought after fashion illustrator and then comic artist........................... Wright's brilliance at drawing and storytelling art permeates every frame of Carol Day, his comic strip masterpiece featured in. Which he worked on until his passing in 1967.
He would pencil just enough to establish the positions of his characters, then go directly into the art with a #2 sable brush. When this was finished, he would begin the process of building the complex and varied layers of ink textures and cross hatching that described the final image in a sort of visual tone feast. Prior to the last 2 years of the strip, he eschewed the American comics method of glued down zipatone in favor of hand creating these rich surface textures. This is one of the earliest Carol Days I've ever seen offered.This is a daily from the beginning of the very first tale--the. Carol Day began as a feature on September 10, 1956, so this daily is 2 weeks from the start on September 26. The panels features Carol, Uncle Marcus, Vernon Flowers and Cousin Hugo. An interesting aspect of the very earliest Carols is that David Wright added a tracing paper overlay with the dialog for the word balloons. After the first 3 weeks of Carol Day, Wright stopped doing this, so later originals do not have this extra. So this daily is one of the very few that still has the overlay. As with all Carol Days, this art is drawn on illustration board.
But other than that the art is in top shape.......................... 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 good feedback about packaging. The item "2nd Week Carol Day Art #14 September 1956 David Wright" is in sale since Thursday, December 22, 2016.
