This is a drawing by comic artist, Ethel Hays, who was well known in the 20s and 30s for her comic strips and later, her illustrations for children’s books. I was reading about her in Womanthology: Heroic, by Renae De Liz, et. al. I was surprised to find that no one has written a biography of Hays or put together a book of her comic strips. I hope someone does one day, because her art is fantastic.
