Setting the Stage

Over the years Kelly had an agenda of sorts for prehistoric hijinx and this beautiful ad that he made for Pan Am (with whom he had a professional relationship), appeared in a National Cartoonists Society April dinner booklet, and helps set the stage for our sojourn to Pandemonia.

As this was for his fellow cartoonists, he was allowed some bared breasts, and it is fascinating (and frustrating) to think of where his creativity might have soared if he had more adult venues. But I guess we can bemoan that for any of the great cartoonists, being grateful that here and there restrictions were lifted.
