It’s Only A… Wait, What Is It?

Today, I finally obtained an item that I’d sought for  a decade, something that I had once let slip through my hands when it went for three figures at an auction, but hadn’t seen available since. And now it’s in my hands… but I still can’t tell you what it …

Beware fake Schulz

I’ve said it before, but with gift-gathering time impending, I shall say it again: beware fake Schulz art. There is a lot of counterfeit on the market.
