This blotter art is signed in pencil by the late great Timothy Leary!

Here we have an amazing period collectible for the FIRST TIME in our auction! This beautiful perforated blotter paper art, featuring a profile of the legendary Dr. Timothy Leary, was created by artist Mark McCloud. The colorful image contains Dr. Leary's S.M.I.L.E. equation. Leary once declared that the Tactics of Evolution are Space Migration, Intelligence Increase and Life Extension. (S.M.I².L.E.)The artwork also exhibits musical notes flowing in his head and the devil on his shoulder. Major eye appeal!

This amazing specimen has been professionally and cleanly matted with archival tape, which we did not want to remove. Otherwise we would have submitted this piece to CGC for certification. The paper is in museum quality condition with no visible flaws whatsoever. Low edition runs such as this one are highly sought after by collectors of modern art and fans alike. Best of all, it's SIGNED by the doctor himself! Read our blog dated 1/20/18 where we discuss the skyrocketing demand for signed material such as this lot!
