Enid for Sale!!!

Gouache painting of Ghost World's Enid Coleslaw by Daniel Clowes
We get a lot of emails here at inquiring about Clowes's original art for sale and we saw that this just came up on eBay...

Your only chance to own a piece of Ghost World original art (unless you want to make an offer on the originals for the entire book, as the artist has kept the Ghost World archives together aside from this piece.)

This is also the first and probably the only time a full-color Clowes painting will be available for sale.  
4 days left...  
This is a public service announcement as Daniel Clowes and are in no way affiliated with the sale of this artwork and posting this just because it's awesome.
