Who Was Frank Godwin?
Frank Godwin died nearly 50 years ago and is virtually unknown today. He was an illustrator who segued into comic strips and occasionally comic books. He is best known for his work on Connie, followed by Rusty Riley, which he drew until his death. Dave Karlen does a nice write up on Godwin over at his well-researched and informative art blog, which you can go to by clicking here. The article is accompanied by some lovely scans, worth looking at. It should be noted that Godwin maintained an incredible level of consistency throughout his long career, on a par with that of Hal Foster; the daily reproduced above was drawn when the artist was 66 years old.
