Archived photos of legendary cartoonists

A Swedish cartoonist/blogger who has posted photos of some of the cartooning industry’s legendary cartoonists. Names like: Al Capp, Otto Soglow, Jimmy Swinnerton, Hal Foster, Westover, Goldberg, Hatlo and Chic Young.

The first thing that jumps out at me is that they all wore ties. At their drawing board. Okay, so maybe it was for the sake of the photo and that they didn’t wear a button down suit everyday while doing their comics, but most of the historical photos I’ve seen usually depict the cartoonist in button down shirts and slacks.

Interesting.
