Katy Keene 1947 and 1955

Here are two Katy Keenes, one from 1947, the second from 1955. It's interesting to see how the artwork evolved over 8 years, and the changes in fashion. Dig that 1947 jacket with $64 and question marks all over it, reflecting the popular quiz show of the time.

By 1955, Katy is looking decidedly more self-assured, with sportswear that features snappier detail and a better fit. Same artist? I wonder.
