Draw It Again, Sam

Wednesday Advertising Day.

Sam Cobean would have one of the greats if he hadn't died in 1951 in a car accident. In fact, he was one of the greats when he lived. He sold cartoons to the top tier of magazines, from the New Yorker to Collier's and the Saturday Evening Post. He did illustration work for those magazines as well and was asked frequently to illustrate advertising campaigns. His one book The Naked Eye still sells well. One of the best running was his series for Ken-L Ration, for which he did many.
