Another original ink drawing from Bizarro is up for sale on eBay for the next few days and your home, office, or crypt NEEDS this art to be complete. Friends will “ooh” and “aah,” enemies with seethe, your parents will wonder why you are so loose with your money. It’s a win/win/win. You won’t believe how low the price is as I write this.
I drew this one in 2001 based on my love of anatomical models and the fact that I was dating a former model at the time. Fortunately, none of her parts were removable and her internal organs were completely hidden at all times, but I found myself being “proud” of the fact that I was dating a model, albeit it a former one. As it turns out, it was no different than dating any other woman and I soon became embarrassed by my shallow, male pride. This cartoon was a poke at my own idiocy and I love the way it turned out. Plus, it’s chock full of so many “secret symbols” that I can’t rely on myself to count them accurately. (If I wanted to spend my time using math, I would have been an astronomer instead of a cartoonist.)
The art you’ll be bidding on is black and white, but here’s what the image looked like in color in newspapers around the world. I was into strange color palettes at the time. Might have been the mushrooms. Click on either image for a way-up-bigger look. Click here for a look at the eBay page. THIS AUCTION ENDS NEXT TUESDAY.
