This is an absolutely delightful effort by Kelly himself (and Selby Kelly) to bring the swamp alive (even with those wonderful herons winging through the background!). I've always wondered what the proper voices would sound like for the swamp cast, and Kelly himself demonstrates a charming homespun cornpone take as well as lovely narration. The animation needed a few more between cells, but so what. It's bee-you-tiful to behold.
Things is purty busy round here, so I'm forced to do what I don't like doin'. Namely posting a strip without cleaning it up — bad registration, lumpy colors and bleed through from the other side. I just ain't got the time, so I'm throwing this post up 'as is', so at least you got somethin' for Sunday, Kelly Sunday. I got some great stuff for the middle of the week if I kin jes' get to it.
My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
