Buying Original Art
I have lots of pages from Fun Home and Are You My Mother? available for sale. The originals don’t look exactly like what you see in the printed books because I did the drawing and the ink wash shading on separate layers of paper, and did the lettering on the computer. Here’s an example:

In the book, page 217 of Fun Home looks like this:
But my line art—india ink on 11 x 14 Bristol board—looks like this (often there are pasted-up or whited out bits, and marginal notes):
So I’ve figured out a way to print the text and the shading on a layer of acetate, like this:
Then I affix the acetate to the line art, so it looks like this:
If you buy a page of Fun Home, I’ll prepare it like that for you if you want, so it’s not just black and white with no text. The art from Are You My Mother? is a little different because there’s a spot color in addition to the ink wash shading. Here’s what the book looks like:
Here’s the line art:
And here’s what that page looks like with the acetate layer of text, spot color, and gray ink wash:
The prices for the pages vary based on how interesting they are.

Dykes to Watch Out For art
I also have the original artwork for many DTWOF episodes available. Each strip is drawn on two separate sheets of 11″ x14″ bristol board. Like so:
Below are a few available strips. They’re scans, so they don’t show all the smudges, whited out bits, penciled notes, etc., that are on the actual original boards.
If you don’t see the strip you want here, check this link for a list of available episodes.
If you’re interested in a strip, contact me at Dyke at dykestowatchoutfor.com. The best way to pay is with the PayPal button on this page but checks are fine too. Email me with any other questions you might have about shipping, special inscriptions, etc.
