Rick O’Shay cartoonists gets exhibit

Stan Lynde’s Rick O’Shay ran in a hundred papers from 1958 to 1977. The Montana native’s artwork is now on display in the Montana Secretary of State’s office in the Capitol building. The Secretary of State began exhibiting artists work at the capitol as a nice touch for tourists and artists.

Stan is one of the greats in the newspaper comics profession. He created two of the best wild western comic strips during his career in syndication. You can check out his second strip “Latigo” over on Humorous Maximus. (plug)

One of the best there ever was. Stan is geniune, true , and all he is was in those picteures. I copied and idolized him as a kid. I am still in awe of him as an adult. Those Sundays with Hipshot up in the mountains. Perfection.

Sorry for those misspellings. My emotions were running away with my typing skills there.

He was one of my favorites when I was growing up. Along with Walt Kelly, I remember simply looking at their work, lingering over it and studying every pen stroke, hoping to one day be able to come even close to their mastery.

It’s sad to read that most of his originals were destroyed in a fire. I guess that makes the one hanging on my wall a real treasure. Interesting how the style of the strip changed from a big foot style to a more realistically drawn one over time.
