Roy Crane and BUZ SAWYER

From the fifth issue of Cartoonist PROfiles, February 1970: Roy Crane shares more from his scrapbook "How to Draw Buz Sawyer."

This is the second part of the series. The first "How to Draw Buz Sawyer" is here.

From Jud Hurd's into:

"Following are some additional selections from what is in reality a big textbook on how to use the 'Craftint' shading medium effectively. It was prepared originally by Crane as a guide for the use of Roy's artist assistant Hank Schlensker, and was donated by Roy to the Syracuse University Manuscript Collection some years ago."

A big hat tip to Don Orehek for this issue of Cartoonist PROfiles!

Don't know if you covered this already, Mike, but Fantagraphics' first hardcover volume of Buz strips came out yesterday.

Thanks, Jim. I love these Scrapbook features too!

Jeff, thanks for the heads up. I did post about the Crane comics being reprinted this year (the first BUZ SAWYER album and the 2nd CAPTAIN EASY Sunday pages book), but I had no idea that BUZ was out now! Thank you!
