Politics You Can Depend On -47
I admit, this strip was a bit indulgent on my part, simply because it let me draw one of cartooning’s greatest characters. If there was a cartoon Mt. Rushmore, I think Pogo would be situated somewhere between Snoopy and Calvin. For those under 40 that haven’t heard of Pogo… if you are a cartoonist, then FOR SHAME!… if not. now worries. Pogo is a strip that had it’s hey day (hay-day?) in the 50′s and 60′s before coming to an end in the 70′s. Walt Kelly is one of the greatest draftsmen to ever live and if you are an artist you owe it to yourself to pick up a Pogo treasurey.
OK, I’ll get off my fanboy soap box and go draw now…
