Dik and Coe

Wednesday Advertising Day.

Monday I showed some of Roland Coe's cartoons. My friend Mike Lynch had some extra information about the artist on his site (see the link on the right). Here I have some of Coe's advertising strips for Nebisco. This was his best knows series, although he did other things as well. I don't know if he did them on his own or through Johnstone adn Cushing, but I do think he was an influence on the early advertising work of Dik Browne. Escpecially his Roger Wilco series, which you can see if you follow the tag. In the same style as Roger Wilco was Colonel Mint, which I therefore think is by Browne as well. I will show those when I get home later today.
