Actually, unless they’re standing next to a picture of the character they created with an arrow pointing to them, most cartoonists are unrecognizable to begin with.
That said, here’s some pics of cartoonist (or in the case of Jerry Siegel, writers) – enjoy!
Note: These are pics I’ve just grabbed off the web over the years, so my apologies for not knowing their original sources. I’ve also added characters the artists are identified with, but it’s usually just the tip of the iceberg in regards to their bodies of work.
All for now. For more I’d suggest running out to any of the numerous comic conventions around the world that has an Artist Alley – get to know a cartoonist firsthand today!
