Beany and Cecil Comics

Here are some comics drawn by Don Christensen, in Willie Ito's style.
Don actually worked for Clampett in the 30s on those black and white Porkys I love. He also drew tons of comic books in the 40s and 50s under the name "Don Arr".
It's interesting to see guys from the 30s adapting to a more modern angular style.
Clampett introduced me to Don at a comicon one year. They seemed still very friendly to each other and I just stood there dumbstruck in front of these guys that made such great cartoons.
