    WILL EISNER. "Street Smarts" (2 pieces) from City People Notebook (1989).

    Lot of two: the original inked page plus the pencil layout. The stand-alone "Street Smarts" appears on page 75 of the Kitchen Sink Press edition of City People Notebook, or page 71 in the new Norton edition.

    Medium/Size/Condition. The preliminary page is drawn in blue and black pencil on 8.5 x 11 inch paper. The inked page is drawn in brush, pen and ink on a lightweight Bristol board measuring 11 inches wide by 14 inches high. The solo page makes fun of big city residents tendency to avoid eye contact. The pencil is close to the finished version except for two elements. Originally Will Eisner's text was written essentially as four stark rules of city life, in all-caps, but then he tempered them into observations. The last two panels were expanded to ill the space far more effectively in the final. Both originals are in excellent condition. They are mounted together with archival tape on a textured tan mat board measuring 16 x 23 inches -all you have to add is the frame and glass (a double-aperture mat is also recommended).

    Provenance/Warranty: The guaranteed to be original art by Will Eisner and is further warranted to be from the Will Eisner estate, which is exclusively represented by the Denis Kitchen Art Agency. The agency's Bill of Sale serves as the ultimate provenance for any future resale.
