Y'know, the guy who wrote and drew Corduroy


A few weeks back Roy Freeman approached us about publishing a little seen work of Don Freeman (Ron's dad and creator of that lovable teddy bear with the green overalls) called Skitzy. He popped the original art into the mail and a big box of drawings from over 50 years ago landed on my desk. As you can see there's tape and whiteout and paste ups all browned and tattered with age. It's glorious! And the real treat is a hand-painted poster (above) for the project that Roy didn't even know about until he was packing the art up. So here's a sneak peek as the artwork looks now and prepare to see a cleaned up version this fall.
