All Betts Are Off
Saturday Leftover Day.
Scanning the Patsy's I showed yesterday, I came across a couple of gems I will show later. One of them was a signed 1942 ad for Nestlé by Jack Betts. Betts later worked on (and probably created) the Neddy Nestlé character, which he drew for over 10 years. About a year ago I recieved a mail from Betts' daughter, who told me some things about his life and untimely death, which i will be sharing later. She also sent me a Christmas card from the thirties and a photo that shows her father at work behind his drawing table. Betts' was one of the mainstays of Johnstone and Cushing, as the other two ads I am sharing here show, but he doesn't seem to have left behind a lot of anecdotes. Who was he? At least now we know what he looked like.
