The Google homepage on October 15 was transformed into an interactive cartoon-strip dreamscape to honor animator Winsor McCay. Believed to be born around 1869 in Michigan, the celebrated animator is best known for creating the comic strip "Little Nemo in Slumberland," which first ran on this day 107 years ago.
There is a fair bit of Masonic themes in Gray’s work as well: the orientalism of many of Daddy Warbuck’s aids (Punjab, Wun Wey, the Asp) who form a brotherhood to protect innocence and goodness (Annie). Warbucks and company are an international fraternal order, held together by a common decency that trancends culture: the masonic ideal in a nutshell.
Or consider the figure of Mr. Am — a jovial diety in the Annie world. He looks like Santa Claus and dresses like an arabian sultan; he’s lived forever and testifies to the unchanging verities of reality (and of human nature); he’s a benign and jovial god, but somewhat distant from human concerns. He’s illustrates the principal of deism.
Well done Google!
