Goodenough Gismo

  • Gismo39
    This is the classic children's book, Goodenough Gismo, by Richmond I. Kelsey, published in 1948. Nearly unavailable in libraries and the collector's market, it is posted here with love as an "orphan work" so that it may be seen and appreciated -- and perhaps even republished, as it deserves to be. After you read this book, it won't surprise you to learn that Richmond Irwin Kelsey (1905-1987) was an accomplished artist, or that as Dick Kelsey, he was one of the great Disney art directors, breaking your heart with "Pinocchio," "Dumbo," and "Bambi."

That looks eerily familiar--from decades ago to today (just a few hours ago in the bathroom with a very abused roll of toilet tissue as I stood and watched the terror unfold...or unroll, literally).

Well, I guess we all have hobbies, eh?

Forget about Jackson Pollock. This is TRUE action art. Next time, how about some shots of the artist at work? :-)

The artist works in the wee hours.
