Pip Squeeks – no. 1

Back in 1952-53 Carl Barks had begun to doubt that the popularity of the Duckburg characters would last. Therefore, he began to develop his own comic and character universe (with strong inspiration from the popular ducks), so that he had something to ‘fall back on’.

Barks named the comic Pip Squeeks, but it never got past this early concept stage. Today, there is not much surviving evidence that Barks toyed with the idea of creating his own comic, making this preliminary pencil artwork a very rare find.

This original drawing is professionally framed and matted to a total size of approx. 40 x 50 cm.

Mayday on the Prairie!

Beautiful oil painting study rendered in pencil, pen and ink. This artwork provides an excellent and rare insight into Carl Barks’ creative process leading up to the finished oil painting.

The prelim is hand-signed and dated by Carl Barks. It was made in 1974 for the painting that was finalized in 1975. The art has been professionally framed in a black wooden frame with a white mat and matching black wooden inner border and behind museum quality reflex-free glass to a total size of approx. 60 x 45 cm.

This amazing study arguably portrays the bull’s hectic movements and Donald’s troubles better than the finished painting and would make a lovely addition to any Carl Barks collection.
