A Woody Guthrie notebook page, Coney Island, 1947. Guthrie had drawn and painted for nearly as long as he’d been writing and singing songs, a kind of lifelong visual diary. His works are full of freewheeling, hot-blooded, irreverent wit and big-hearted intelligence. As the man himself suggested, nobody could illustrate Guthrie better than Guthrie.
