HERRIMAN, GEORGE (1881-1944) Krazy Kat [Ignatz on a Motorcycle].
Seven panel drawing for a Sunday comic strip dated 2.28, signed Herriman (l.c.). Pen and black ink with watercolor washes on illustration board. 22 5/8 x 14 5/8 inches (57.5 x 37 cm). Minor surface toning, faint stain at lower edge, two small paper strips (likely where date and syndicate slugs would have been, though these are now detached).
Krazy runs to Offisa Pupp to tell him that Ignatz Mouse is "on a motive cycle an' he can't stop it." He's heading straight for the jail at sixty miles an hour. Pupp opens the door to trap him, he roars in, and Pupp slams the door behind him "He's in" says Krazy; "For sixty days" says Pupp. The two wander away, Krazy wondering why Pupp doesn't show Ignatz to his room, both unaware that the Coconino County Jail now has a mouse and motorcycle-shaped hole where Ignatz went straight through the rear wall and continued his progress.
