A Jar Of Fun

Wednesday Advertising Strip Day.

Here is a series of newspaper ads in a style that seems to have had it's influence on Dik Browne. Or at least it does to my eye. On some of the ads, the art is signed. I can't fully make out the signature, though. It looks like Sargeant, but then again it doesn't. I don't recognize either the art or the signature from magazines cartoons (which would seem to be the most obvious place for this talent to show up). Maybe there is somebody out there who can enlighten me? The frequency and distribution of these samples seem to indicate that these ads were done every four weeks.
