The largest and most central image is of a man wearing a beret, neck tie, and smock. He is turned slightly to his right, and writes with a quill using his left hand while holding a smoking cigarette in his right. He looks up at the viewer. Most of his clothes and his writing surface are only suggested by broad areas of aquatint and stopped-out blank spaces. Behind him and much smaller, are images of, clockwise from left: two clowns, two women, and a ship. The left and bottom of the sheet are left blank.

7-sided frame made of reclaimed wood moulding and slats nailed together and backed with strips of green felt, possibly from a pool table. Gold wire traces the wood frame, and is accented with a fuzz ball or googly eye at each corner. A toy car is placed on the gold wire “track” at bottom center; car racing flag stickers attached to the frame in a couple places. Three pieces of thread are strung horizontally across the frame, a “spider web” attached to top two lines with puffy paint. A wood (?) cutout of a smiling joker mouth hung from web by wire.

In this vertical print we see what is presumably a family group of harlequins. At the back is a tall man in a pointed hat, wearing a mask with an elongated nose, playing a guitar. In front of him is a seated woman breastfeeding a baby. Next to her is a young adult or a child standing and gesturing to her with his right hand. He is holding an instrument and wearing a diamond checkered costume.
