Here is the original art for the classic "Dennis the Menace" Daily Comic Strip, dated May 24th, 1975, which was created by Hank Ketcham.

This nifty daily from the classic strip measures 9.5" x 7.5" inches, and was pencilled and inked by Hank Ketcham. Ketcham did a beautiful job of changing compositions from image-to-image, and packs so much into each half-panel. Typically beautiful varied line weight, which adds to the liveliness of the image. This panel is notched in the upper right, Ketcham's tell-tale sign that he drew this piece, not one of his assistants. 
The artwork is in excellent condition and is dated and signed by Hank Ketcham.

HANK KETCHUM
Hank Ketcham (1920-2001) was one of the true masters of the comic strip medium. His Dennis the Menace was full of beautiful compositions and lovely, energetic drawing. Combine those attributes with his sweet, gentle humor, and you have all of the makings of a terrific strip! Ketcham, like Bud Blake, strived to keep the liveliness of his pencil roughs apparent in his finished panels. Both gentlemen took their roughs, put a piece of lightweight Strathmore on top (using a lightbox), and inked directly without further penciling. In this way they looked to maintain the energy found in the original pencil drawings. Ketcham once told me that he went through a lot of Strathmore to get to the piece that would ultimately be good enough to go with.
