Judy : Vol. 27, 1880 Plate 5


We conclude Volume No. 27 of the Judy series with this pair of December outfits. One of them is sporty, but the other is sorta in the spirit of the holidays now behind us: a little last-minute bling as we bring in the New Year, I guess.

I just finished Volume No. 25 while on holiday and it strikes me as even a little less imaginative than this volume, but hopefully it will still be interesting. It’s fun for me watching Chasemore (the artist) sort of make this minor feature into a thing of its own through the years. I have the advantage of seeing the breadth of the series all in one go, and I continue to be excited about fun things ahead.

But I’m trying to be methodical and not skip around so much, so we’re going to go backwards to pick up Vol. No. 25 over the next five weeks, and in February we’ll boldly go forward into new territory.

    Oh, I love the pearl encrusted gown on the left. It’s genuinely beautiful. I mean I don’t expect “beauty” from Judy costumes. Quirky, yes, but not beautiful. That one is really glorious.

    • ha! yes! occasionally these surprise me too.

    The pearl gown is great. I don’t envy you — drawing all of the beads & pleats!

    • there’s something very zen about drawing these Judy costumes. the fussy little details appeal to my inner doodler.
