Addison Morton “MortWalker

September 3, 1923 – January 27, 2018


Sad News – The cartoon world has lost a legend! Addison Morton “MortWalker,  a World War II veteran who satirized the Army with antics of the lazy private “Beetle Bailey,” died Saturday. 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 now, 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.”

Manic Mondays featuring other cartoon projects from the drawing boards right here kicking off your week. Various Editorial Cartoons as well as other 2-D Cartoonovision nonsense. All directly from the drawing boards.

Welcome To The Jungle© Reloaded Wednesdays featuring hand selected strips from the previous 11 year syndicated run. 

FIDDLESTIX© Fridays continue on for the 30th Anniversary featuring PINHEAD©. Finally after all these years a character gets his due acknowledgement. PINHEAD© rarely appeared in the strips during the current syndicated run.

Watch for bonus material throughout the year like chances to bid on original art through charitable auctions. We are throwing down the material at the drawing boards please support newspaper cartoonists friends. I really do appreciate it. I’m sure we will also take a look at A Minute With Captain Obvious© during 2018.

 ATTENTION FELLOW CREATORS HELP CELEBRATE THE 30th ANNIVERSARY OF FIDDLESTIX©!

 

We sure would enjoy seeing guest strips roll into the studio from other fellow cartoonists to help celebrate the epic FIDDLESTIX©30th Anniversary milestone in 2018. Throwing this out early so to give other creators a large window of time to join in on the festivities. Feel free to hit me up fellow creators, I can send along any reference materials just as I did for the 25th Anniversary Celebration.
