Here's some better pictures and information on this, from Brian Nicklas.
"While cleaning up and moving things around, I found this Celebrity Delly Menu that Richard did. I
think Richard told me it was his first actual cash payment for art. (I
paid him a pack of Twinkies and a Coke for an Atilla the Hun's Birthday
Party announcement.- And I keep looking for that - it was a great
looking Attila wearing a cone party hat and using a party blower.)
is pretty much a year out of high school I think. The original menu is
on blue paper - it doesn't reproduce well. BUT LOOK AT THOSE FACES.
What a talent. (Signature below Woody Allen)
The Delly in Rockville moved, and moved yet again, and then was gone. But
the best was when Richard and a few other friends came to visit me when
I was at Uni in Florida. We went to Disney World (of course) and
stopped for lunch/brunch on the way. At the exit in the North Orlando
area, we saw a shopping center and pulled in. There was a sign for
"Celebrity Delly" so we thought "what a hoot - let's go." Inside, down
the wall, was the mural Richard had painted at the Rockville location.
Except copied. And copied BADLY. We were laughing so much we could
hardly eat. I think we found out the one in Orlando was run by a cousin of the owner in Rockville.
was the trip where Richard couldn't contain himself at Disney. At one
point, he pointed at the mouse head cast into the sewer lid and shouted:
"A cartoonist did all this! ALL THIS! The POWER!!!"
