My comics pantoum experiments continue with this appropriated pantoum using instructional panels by an uncredited artist.
If anyone can identify the artist on this I would appreciate it. It’s Segar-esque yet clearly not him. Perhaps a later Popeye artist? Someone mentioned Rube Goldberg, who was indeed won of the artists working on the Famous Artist Cartoon Course from which this is drawn. Could that be it? (Interestingly, if you look around online you’ll find these same panels redrawn in a much less graceful style by some later artist. Who knows why.)
[update: Jason Little figured out that it’s Segar’s former assistant Bud Sagendorf, who went on to take over Popeye when Segar died (a collection of his Popeye work was published recently)–thanks Jason!]
I used a slightly altered Helvetica Neue for the font to approximate the look of the original worksheets. I would appreciate it if anyone could let me know which typefaces were actually used.
