Four items: a TLS, one page, 8.5 x 11, Hank Ketcham Enterprises letterhead, October 26, 1994, in part: “In response to your request for a DENNIS drawing for your continuing education program dealing in the Arts, I am enclosing some pencil studies of a daily panel I produced last year….This is the real original art, where the decision are made, where the eraser is used and where great thought is given to the finished product…As you can see, here are three different solutions to a single idea. I settled for the drawing which includes the caption beneath.” Includes the referenced three original Dennis the Menace storyboard sketches accomplished in graphite by Ketcham on individual sheets of 8.5 x 11 tracing paper, all showing Dennis with his exasperated parents, one captioned below: "Today he broke the unbreakable, stained the stainless and spoke the unspeakable!" In overall fine condition, with some smudging to graphite.
