Buck Rogers Crayon Ship, 24 x 18, oil on cradled board, detail
This is a detail of my painting Buck Rogers Crayon Ship. The painting will be shown at CK Contemporary Gallery. Show opens May 16
This is "school crayon" No. 019 made by American Pencil Company New York in 1936. One side of the box depicts Buck and Wilma looking through a porthole . The opposite side depicts "Buck Rogers Crayon Ship" with die-cut square on right where pencils are visible and completes the ship design. The box contains six multi-colored pencils.
The 'chalk drawings' (yes, these are painted with oil paint) are also based on the graphics from this box.
