Walt Kelly: Unseen NCS Drawings 1967

Above the cover of the ANNIVERSARY ISSUE OF THE CARTOONIST APRIL 24 1967, with an unsigned cartoon of a cherub declaring the age of the NCS.

Here are some drawings that Walt Kelly did on behalf of the National Cartoonists Society's Cartoonist Reubens magazine. The NCS Reubens were held on April 24, 1967. It was the 21st birthday of the professional organization.

So far as I know, these are largely unseen since they were specially drawn for the journal. The first two are a gatefold ad for Pan Am.
