March 3, 1951: From the earth they came, and so shall they return


More of Violet's mud pies.

Take note, here, of Violet's hair. She's the only character at this point with hair that doesn't cling completely to the head; it hangs down a bit. This doesn't last forever actually, later on Violet's hair is changed to be more like the other characters.


  1. Schulz sure put a lot of white "shading" in Violet's hair--I am just noticing it since you pointed out her hairdo. Also I now realize how obsessed with mud pies she was.

  2. Yeah, it's rather a clever effect, although once you see it as empty space between charcoal pencil shading it becomes harder to see it as anything else.
