In the Cool and Peaceful

This is a case of Kelly adding on a big section of art to an existing panel for use in one of the early S&S books. 

I'm posting it here in high resolution as Kelly's art deserves.


  1. Kelly didn't draw enough cypress knees in the swamp. Those things are hallmark of southern marshes.

    My guess is that this panel, which concludes "The Pogo Papers" was one draw specifically for the book. But at a period when I think of Walt Kelly preferring a strip filled with characters and talk balloons and not much background, this is some lush stuff.
