Carolyn Belefski Cul de Sac Meets Curls Comic Strip Original Art (2011). Carolyn Belefski, creator of Curls (page 9): "For my Team Cul de Sac art, I wanted to create a story involving Richard's characters and my Curls character. I felt like the Otterloop parents needed to go on a date because they hardly have any time for themselves, so I wanted them to get away and introduce Curls to look after Alice and Petey. Richard Thompson is a brilliant cartoonist. I admire his skills very much, and I wish Team Cul de Sac the best of luck to raise money for Parkinson's research." This strip has an image area of 13" x 10", and the art is in Excellent condition. A computer color guide print is included with this lot.
