Own Your Own Cruikshank
No, really! If you’ve a spare $1,200 to $1,800 floating about in your pocket, of course.
I was recently drawn to a little place called Illustration House here in New York City. If you select the Index By Artist you may note that a couple big name children’s illustrators are up for purchase. The aforementioned George Cruikshank was the first I saw. No? How about a James Thurber instead? The adult illustrators far outweigh those who did work for children’s publications, but it’s definitely worth a peek just the same. Particularly if you happen to incline towards the "independently wealthy" end of the monetary spectrum.
Thanks to Drawn for the link.
