Us Potential Victims

Sorry I'm slowing down on posting here. For one thing, I really am close to exhausting my stash of Pogo Sundays that I clipped from the paper from 1963 through 1973. You've seen a LOT of Pogo Sundays between 3 of my blogs. A LOT. The other thing is that I'm in a very busy time of my art career, which is amazing, but it too is exhausting . . . ME!

So, I'm not giving up here, just slowing down and prepping non-Sunday Kelly material. So hang in there all you Kelly-holics. Good stuff is yet to come. Here, I'm going to start a little run of dailies from 1965 that way back then I pasted into a scrapbook album. I trimmed the edges too close and it's dingy newsprint, but still it's Kelly that you prolly haven't seen. This first one is from 51 years ago TODAY! I'll post the rest of the short run as I can, and we'll go from there.

Look at that $#!%-eatin' grin on Owl's face!

  1. Thanks so much for keeping the Pogo rollin' on!

  2. That irate little fish is pure genius. Kelly really was a cartoon artist in a class by himself.

  3. Thanks, Thom. It's a wonderful strip. It is so consequent, so realistically done. Although so crazy and so surrealistic. A gem!
    We can't thank you enough.
    Much success on your other projects, too.
    And be careful: don't burn out.

  4. Great, Thom. Thanks ever so much!

  5. I'm thrilled to see dailies from 1965. Thanks for sharing them!
