Team Cul de Sac auction raises $47k; Watterson painting sold for $13k

The Team Cul de Sac auction came to an end last night. I can’t help but think Chris Sparks, the team organizer, is genuinely pleased with the results. Collectively the auctioned raised over $47,000 (minus fees, etc.). The most watched item was Bill Watterson’s oil painting of Petey Otterloop which sold for $13,145.00.

I don’t care about owning original art. But I would pay through the NOSE for an original Watterson.

Nice job, Mason! To be included with Watterson, Pastis, Thompson, McDonnell, Sikoryak, Sergio, Peirce and Jim Davis … wow! That’s incredible. Pops would be very proud! As am I. :)
