Mel Crawford's Big Red!

Hi, Kids! As promised last post, today we have some more beautiful artwork from the great Mel Crawford featured in the 1962 Little Golden Book, Walt Disney’s Big Red.

Big Red tells the story of a big Irish Setter, owned by a wealthy man and kept in his kennel of ribbon-winning show dogs. Like all dogs, however, Big Red needed a kid! This story is adopted beautifully by Kathleen N. Daly from the Disney move of the same name. Ms. Daly was an editor at Little Golden Books in the 1960s and penned many of the stories.

I love Little Golden Books. The artwork was (and still is) exquisite. Just look at this series of beautiful paintings by Mr. Crawford!

I hope all you kids are having a great holiday season. I will see you all again very soon. Until then, I hope you are all warm, safe, and happy!

Next up, some work from one of my all-time favorite cartoonists, Howie Post!
