Billposters – by Tom Wood


Creation year: 1940

This funny drawing was created during the development of a page-long comic for the April 1940 issue of Good Housekeeping. The page depicted a short scene from the short Billposters, in which Donald and Goofy try to post ads for tomato soup but keep getting thwarted by both a pesky windmill and a curious (and hungry) goat. The cartoon was released on May 17, 1940. This professionally framed original artwork ranks among the finest original Tom Wood pieces to surface on the secondary market in recent years: this is a true piece of historic fine art and an evident piece of ultra high-quality investment art.
