Ah, Mopsy! Gladys Parker was such a unique artist, and Mopsy was based on her own looks! She must've been a cutie. Her style was never less than fluid, and she was really careful with composition. I really loved those "flapper comics" from her early days, and Ethel Hay's work as well - they were all a bit racy, to boot! Wonder if they've ever been collected into a hardback?

I don't know if they've ever been published in book form, but I'd love to find some of that flapper art from the 20s. I've got a few images; nothing to build a series around, unfortunately.

Dixie Dugan, the Brooksie inspired flapper, was one of my faves. The whole era had some snappy visuals, it would be a real shame if there isn't something done in the near future.
