Default Carolyn Kelly, R.I.P.

Excerpts from a blog by Mark Evanier:

Quote:
A truly lovely person left us last night around 10 PM. Carolyn Kelly was, as many of you know, the daughter of the great cartoonist Walt Kelly, creator of the newspaper strip, Pogo. She was also a cartoonist in her own right and some years after his death when the strip was revived for a time, she briefly drew her father's greatest creation. I occasionally said that she was his greatest co-creation but she thought that was excessive and asked me to stop saying it.
Though she dabbled in other cartooning and in animation, most of her artistic endeavors were in the area of book design. In 2011, she united those skills with a passionate desire to see her father's work properly preserved and made available. That was when she began working on the award-winning series from Fantagraphics Books that is reprinting that glorious feature.
She not only co-edited and designed the books and painted the covers but with a devotion that transcended mere editorial conscientiousness, supervised and sometimes personally did the necessary restoration work. On many of the older strips, only imperfect source material was available so precision surgery had to be done if these books were going to be done right. Carolyn did her part of it right using one of my computers and my drawing table. She often put long, long hours into just one daily strip to get it the way her dad had originally drawn it.
Quote:
She was one of the most compassionate people I've ever encountered; the kind who never met a person in need — even total strangers — without wanting to help them in some way. In fact, one of the things we argued over at times was my feeling that she was putting way too many other people, including me, ahead of her own needs.
Carolyn had many, many talents to accompany all that niceness. In addition to cartooning and book design, she would crochet magnificent scarves and hats.
Also, she was a superb cook and it was never a matter of slavishly following someone's recipe, not even her own. She would invent on the fly, adding in some of this and a lot of that along with a pinch of something or other, all selected and measured on sheer instinct. That meant the final product was always surprising and when I said, "Hey, this is great. Can you make it again?" her usual answer was that she wasn't sure what she'd done but would try. The next time, it would not be the same but it would usually be even better.

Not just a member but the founder of the band. They put on one of the best live shows that I have seen. If I had a choice between The J.Geils Band and almost any other band to see live again, it would be them. It was a party every time that they played. A couple of selections:

Ain't Nothing But a Party (Live):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBXAzVN7PYg

Whammer Jammer (Live):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6T1C2kCMdc

Looks like it is time to call in sick again to work and break out the Whiskey (or Whisky).

Aww man. Sorry to hear. I remember him and his work from the Chappelle show. Great story teller. Here he is talking about Prince's reaction to the skit he did on the Chappelle's Show. Hard to believe they are both gone....

Default Joe Harris 1928-2017

I missed any announcements that came out earlier, this appeared in my local paper today, entitled:

Illustrator Designed Underdog

Quote:
In the late 1950s he created a floppy-eared white cartoon rabbit to sell Trix, a fruit-flavored, multicolored version of General Mills’s more popular Kix. He also drew a storyboard and wrote ad copy, including “Silly rabbit! Trix are for kids,” words that became synonymous with the cereal.
Quote:
Mr. Harris drew storyboards and designed characters like King Leonardo, Klondike Kat and Tennessee Tuxedo.

The best known of these characters was Underdog, who was transformed from a canine version of a shoeshiner into a superhero, usually when the reporter Sweet Polly Purebred was threatened by villains, including the evil scientist Simon Bar Sinister and the natty wolf gangster Riff Raff. Mr. Harris drew Underdog as an unlikely hero, a noodle-armed dog engulfed in a baggy red suit and blue cape.
