Snugg as a Bugg

Monday Cartoon Day.

Bob Bugg was a great magazine illustrator in the modern style. He started around the same time as Hank Ketcham, maybe a bit later. You can see they are of the same generation. I may have shown these Thiw Week pieces before, but they were in my 'yet to show' folder. He worked well into the sixties, as you can see, with The American Weekly as one of his regular clients. As far as I can tell, he never had a gagstrip or a panel of his own until late in his career, when he did New Neighbours. By then his style was 'old hat' but we can now see it as all part of the work of a major talent.
