When Cartoonists Ruled the World
Monday Cartoon Day
Irwin was another one of the second tier cartoonists, at lest if you consider the New Yorker as the first tier. Cartoonists like Irwin Caplan, Virgil Partch, mort Walker Hank Ketcham, Bo Brown, Chon Day, Dan Tobin, the Berenstainns, Cavalli, Jerry Marcus, Stan hunt, Rob't Day, Ned Hilton, Boltinoff, Colin Alen and others all worked for the better paying clients such as The Saturday Evening Post, Look, True, The American Weekly, This Week and Collier's on a regular basis. Here is sme of Caplan's work for Collier's. Always stylisticly impressive, always a bit funny (but not laugh out loud). He did very well in the forties and fifties and even managed to end up with a daily newspaper cartoon when the marlets dried down.
