First Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle illustration fetches $71k,
Seems like the value of original cartoon art is rising. Heritage Auctions recently sold the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles illustration for $71,700. It was drawn by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle co-creator Kevin Eastman back in 1983. The winning bidder was anonymous. Profits of the auction go to The Hero Initiative, a non-profit he is active with that provides a financial safety net for comic artists and writers.
