"The biggest one we’ve ever seen..."
They say it's one of the big secrets to being successful...
Getting it wrong.
Here's an example...
A young guy from Minnesota is sat at his lonely desk. He's armed with nothing but a pen and paper.
He receives letter after letter, and they all say...
"Thank you for your submission. Unfortunately your work does not suit our needs."
Rejection slip after rejection slip lands on his desk... time and time again.
Sometimes, he thinks, he'll get a rejection no matter what he scribbles with his pen.
But here's the thing...
He never let it get him down
This guy persevered. Just like the old saying...
'If I get it wrong 999 times, I'll get it right in the end.'
And just look at his career 40 years later...
His scribblings have been read and enjoyed across 75 countries in 2,200 publications.
And, even though this gentleman sadly died in 2000...
He went on to earn $33 million after his death
His original drawings have sold for hundreds of thousands at the world's top auction houses.
Including $193,000 for six original sketches in 2007. And $82,000 for two hand-drawn sketches the following year...
You'll recognise his drawings, and so may your children, and your parents. They're iconic works.
In fact, So famous are these scribblings that there's even a theme park about them.
I mean, not even Picasso had a theme park opened for him!

He achieved all this with just a pen and paper
And, of course, a little bit of imagination.
That's why his works sell for so much. Every single one holds a little bit of the magic.
Or the genius, if you will.
Which is why I'm so excited to show you this...
We were very lucky to find this rare piece - and had to 'fight off the competition' to get it.
I've been a fan of this man's work for decades. His works are so incredibly iconic, despite being so illusively simple.
And, as I said, this is the largest piece by this artist that I've ever seen...
It's from his heyday, in the 1970s. Crowds of people saw him draw it, so its provenance is without question.
I'll bet you've seen reproductions of this image many times before.
But this is an original, drawn by the man himself at the peak of his powers.
