Randy Wicks Papers Donated to Historical Society

The complete works of nationally recognized editorial cartoonist Randy Wicks, who drew pointed and poignant illustrations of local and worldwide life for The Signal, have been donated to the Santa Clarita Valley Historical Society.

The cartoons [504 local and 3,182 national] donated range in size from the standard 8×10 to much larger formats and include smaller sketches found in his Signal studio.

Randy was one of the greatest “unknown” editorial cartoonists of his time. I was honored to be his friend during our years together in the AAEC. He was a graduate of CalArts in the days when Disney was beginning to train a new generation of animators to replace the “9 Old Men”. Randy’s classmates included such luminaries as Tim Burton and Mike and Patty Peraza,

Instead of going into animation Randy gravitated toward editorial cartooning and spent his career at the Newhall Signal. He passed away too soon and will always be missed by those of use who valued his talent and his friendship.
