Oh, What Fun It Is
Once again from the Complete Nursery Song Book, here are a couple of Kelly illustrations, this time in a holiday spirit. The charcoalish drawing seems so different from what we usually associate with Kelly, and is pretty. The ink drawing of the horse and sleigh has crisp and bold line work that is gorgeous. Remember these are from 1947, pre Pogo comic strip, but deep into his comic book days.
