Wednesday Illustration Day
Dick Shaw is best know among cartoon historians for being one of a group of cartoonists who worked in animation, including Virgil Partch and Sam Cobean. He is also mentioned as the writer of the daily Mickey Mouse strips in 1942 at InDucks, where they add that he worked as a story man for Disney from 1944 to 1955 and for UPA from 1955 to 1962. The full list of cartoons he worked on is here. All the cartoon work he did apart from that was as a sideline. And so, apparently was some illustration work. Follow the link to see more of his cartoons.
