This one is long overdue; tonight is the grand opening of our Charles Dana Gibson archive! To honor an artist of this stature, we’re kicking it off with a complete 24 part story: A Widow and Her Friends. This story was originally published at the turn of the century, but I luckily stumbled upon a weekly reprint from 1913. This series of illustrations was extremely popular in its day; it’s not hard to see why. Enjoy!
Featuring John T. McCutcheon, Tad Dorgan, Carey Orr, Clare Briggs, E. A. Batchelor, Hal Coffman, Jack Callahan, Tom McNamara, George Herriman, Harry Hershfield, Cliff Sterrett, Fontaine Fox, Jean Knott, Rube Goldberg, T. E. Powers, and Nell Brinkley.
After finding those Rawhide Bill strips, I went hunting for some info on Heppner Blackman but I wasn’t expecting much…I certainly didn’t think I’d come across biographical details AND a photo! Plus we get Winsor McCay, Norman Jennett, Clifford Sterrett, Clarence Rigby, George Westcott, John P. Collins and Garnet Warren as well? Jackpot!
Just wanted to share a little piece I found on James Montgomery Flagg. Perhaps we’ll be seeing more of his work soon..?
