Gluyas Williams Galleries

John Adcock's Yesterday's Papers blog showcases art by cartoonist Gluyas Williams, with links to more. Williams' quiet observational humor and stark line work and black spotting makes for a distinctive look. You've probably seen his work illustrating a Robert Benchley book, or an old gag cartoon of his from The New Yorker. (His 1928 classic was: "The day a cake of soap sank at Procter & Gamble's.")

Mr. Adcock cites that Mr. Willaims also drew a series of newspaper panels, and reproduces a number of them.

Big hat tip: Journalista!
