DescriptionPogo and Albert Sketch Original Art (c. 1950s). Walt Kelly's classic newspaper comic strip characters Pogo Possum and Albert the Alligator are featured on this original sketch, done in graphite and color pencils on a sheet of Walt Disney Studios 12 field animation paper. The drawing is in an old mat, with an opening of 9" x 7", and overall mat size of 13.75" x 11". This piece was given to Disney layout artist (and producer of The Black Cauldron) Joe Hale by Ward Kimball, a longtime friend of Walt Kelly's, and it comes to us from Joe's personal collection. The inscription on back reads "Original Drawing by Walt Kelly," but we believe this to be from an unknown hand. In Good condition with paper toning, small stain, and edge tears.
