Addison Morton “MortWalker

September 3, 1923 – January 27, 2018


Still reeling from the Sad News  about the cartooning world losing a legend! Addison Morton “MortWalker,  a World War II veteran who satirized the Army with antics of the lazy private “Beetle Bailey,” died Saturday, January 27 last year. He was 94.

Walker died at his home in Stamford, Conn., Walker began publishing cartoons at age 11 and was involved with more than a half-dozen comic strips in his career, including “Gamin and Patches,” “Hi and Lois,” “Boner’s Ark” and “Sam & Silo.” But he found his greatest success drawing the private “Beetle Bailey”, along with the other denizens at the fictional Camp Swampy for nearly 70 years. The character that was to become Beetle Bailey made his debut as Spider in Walker’s cartoons published by the Saturday Evening Post in the late 1940s. Walker changed Spider’s name and launched “Beetle Bailey” as a college humor strip in 1950.

I had the honor of knowing Mort for many years, and he was a huge supporter of the scribbles from my humble drawing board. Mort created many of the strips that I always turn to first on the printed pages. I will miss speaking with him, he was such a warm and great individual. Simply at a loss. There will never be another cartoonist that will compare to the awesomeness that was Addison Morton “MortWalker.

Ha! I will always smile when I think of my friend. Here is some coolness that Mort personally gave me. It has been hanging proudly in my humble studio since I received it. A great memory that I will always remember is that I would make old school hand drawn birthday cards for Mort. The second image is the inside image from the last card I sent him. Mort as “Sarge” alongside PINHEAD as “Beetle.”

We interrupt your normal programming  for a special announcement.

Originals from the drawing boards rarely leave the studio.  I thought I would ask the cartoon fans what you would like to see drawn for the Doodle4NF Auction? I’ll draw the funnies and then you can bid on them. This year will be the final auction for Doodle4NF. Get ready for the huge art auction extravaganza!

 Directly from the studios! Thanks for all your continual support of bidding on the original art as well as reading and sharing the funnies. Speaking of support! I am hoping you would support a very worthy cause. Doodle4NF
