a very Willie Christmas

The 1941 run of New Yorkers certainly was a treasure-trove of new Willie the Whaler ads including this one - a close-up of Willie wishing a Merry Christmas! It's weird to see him this way, with fully-delineated hands - maybe too delineated. I almost missed this ad, the style is so different from the typical Willie ad.
