Kurt Vonnegut's Original Artwork is Up For Sale

by Gabby Bess
Robert Weide has been attempting to make a documentary about his longtime friend Kurt Vonnegut for 33 years. Thanks to Kickstarter, a documentary about the literary idol, Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck In Time, is finally happening. With the goal of $250,000 reached, we'll finally get a cinematic glimpse into the author's life through Weide's dutiful lens from 1988 to the author's death in 2007. And now we can also peak into Vonnegut's mind from a different angle. Weide is selling off the author's original drawings to further fund the project. "Kurt's always made gifts of his art to me," Weide told Mashable. "Basically all of the original artwork on our walls is from one Vonnegut or other." Ranging from doodles to "bad jokes that he just loved," check out Vonnegut's delightfully curmudgeonly artwork, below.

The limited-edition, signed artworks are available over at Unstuck In Time's Kickstarter page for $1,000 - $2,000 and you can view all the drawings up for sale on Weide's website.
