Introducing the Officially Licensed Peanuts Collection—a compilation of canvases featuring Charles Schulz's beloved characters from America's favorite comic strip.
We always thought the Peanuts' cast of characters were too big to be contained within four panels of a comic strip. Snoopy's alter egos alone could supply enough content for a series of their own, starring "Joe Cool," "The Red Baron," and "The Masked Marvel." Throw in the soft-spoken sidekick Woodstock, tomboyish Peppermint Patty, studious Marcie, cheeky Lucy, kindhearted Linus, the Beagle Scouts, and good ol' Charlie Brown, and you have an ensemble for the ages.
Peanuts creator Charles Schultz began the comic strip in 1950 and continued it for half a century until he passed away in 2000. The genre-defining saga entertained hundreds of millions of readers every day, whether at the breakfast table or on the commute. Other series came and went but none had the staying power of Peanuts.
Schultz's work formed a backdrop of leisure throughout the country's formative years. From the rise of Elvis Presley to putting a man on the moon, all the way up to the biggest game-changer of all: the internet, America could always turn to "the funnies" in their local paper and escape into the world created by one of the most prolific storytellers in literature.
But imagination alone didn't bring Schultz's success; it was his dedication to his craft. He sat at his desk and bled through his pen every day until he had a legacy of 17,897 published strips—one of the longest stories ever told. He built the world. He made the rules.
IKONICK respects the daily grind. We know that the only way to build your world and make your rules is to put in the work every single day. Commit to that and you will control your own destiny.
The Officially Licensed Peanuts Collection brings instantly recognizable panels of the comic series to your walls. Classic scenes from the "football gag" to Snoopy and Woodstock sitting on top of his doghouse are paired with potent lines to inspire and motivate you through art. The collection's artwork features lessons about seeing the flowers through the rain; about committing to optimism; about the value of audacious goals and persistence in the face of failure.
