Tippy's Friend Go-Go #15

This is a scan of original art by Doug Crane I purchased this year, despite an office temp's wages, at the San Diego Comic Convention. The subject matter is perennial--a discotheque tableau vivant. Beneath Animal's overly verbose set-up line, you can see a tentative arm raised in pencil and thought better of. The potted plant I consider a composition cop out, but I can appreciate the white out of all the music notes. Other tell-tale signs: the guitar looks like it's backwards, and the drummer has neither throne nor cymbals. Next I need to find an actual copy of the comic book.
