Focus on Cartoonists: Cartoons Magazine Centennial May 1913

Above, a pair of short bios of William Kemp Starrett and Ernest E. Burtt, opens up our monthly Focus on Cartoonists, scanned from the May 1913 issue of Cartoons Magazine.

Click on the above & below pictures, to view the cartoons in detail, and read their captions.

The May 1913 Comment and Review page below, is mostly devoted to denouncing Indiana’s Anti-Cartoon Bill, while simultaneously dismissing Futurist Art and the artists who create it, as frauds or “fake“s…

Above, artist Herbert H. Perry (using art examples by Edgar F. Schilder), on “The Stages of a Cartoon”.

Beneath, an ad for bound volumes of Cartoons Magazine‘s first year.

Karl K. Knecht writes about his Chalk Talk Experiences, above.

While Henry C. Williamson, below, continues his series on cartoonists of the past, writing on the one year anniversary of the death of Homer Davenport.

Cartoonist J.H. Shonkwiler hypes promotes his cartoon character, Billy Butt-in.

And finally, below we hear stories for about visitors intruding upon cartoonists’ studios (and what the cartoonists did to them), and of cartoonists bravely not reacting to an instance of judicial oversight (unless you count telling this story).
