Bud Blake Original Signed Sketch


Bud Blake
Original Signed Sketch

Original 7x10" sketch drawn and signed by Bud Blake, on his personal "Tiger" stationary.

The strip, with its cast of Tiger and his boyhood pals, was named as
the year's best humor strip in 1970, 1978 and 2000 by the National
Cartoonists Society. It still appears in more than 100 newspapers in 11
countries, King Features said.

The strip, which captured children's humor and charm, included Tiger,
his little brother Punkinhead, his best friend Hugo and his dog Stripe.

Blake continued drawing "Tiger" until he was 85.

Before becoming a cartoonist, Blake was executive art director for an
ad agency whose clients included General Motors and Goodyear. After
quitting, he worked as a freelance cartoonist and on a cartoon panel
called "Ever Happen to You?" He created "Tiger" in 1965, nine years
after leaving the advertising firm.
