Kay Kato

There's always something a little eerie about estate sales - the idea of strangers pawing through the possessions of the deceased. Kay Kato was a local cartoonist and illustrator whose work was published nationally. There must have been thousands of drawings here today - some in frames, some in folders, some just crammed into boxes.

The sale was held in Kay's house. I bought a signed (to her) book of George Price cartoons. And spent a long time leafing through vintage Saturday Evening Posts in the attic. I don't know what will become of these charming cartoons on the breakfast nook walls.

I feel the same about estate sales. I'm even a little uncomfortable with garage sales -- it seems so invasive! Still, what you have here is special. This is pure talent!
