The xerox handbill features a photo of Johnson's head in white against a black background. On his head Johnson has written in blue marker: "Tim, Your box arrived. I'll photo it." Beneath the writing Johnson has done a sizable drawing of a face positioned to look like a large hoop earring dangling from his ear. The words "Dead Pan Club" are rubber stamped underneath the drawing. Johnson dated the piece 3/24/94. Also included is a reproduction of a photograph of Johnson carrying a ladder past a group of spectators. The original boldly hand-addressed envelope is present with Johnson's rubber stamped return address. Fine. The lot:.
