Obscurity of the Day: Otto's Auto
Here's one of the many panel features marketed by Ledger Syndicate. Otto's Auto was unsigned and the credit in the E&P listing was just to 'Otto'. The delightful art kind of has the look of a style sometimes used by Dorman H. Smith to me. I'm probably off-base though since he was busy at NEA at the time. Another dim possibility might be F.G. Cooper. Anybody else have a guess about the mystery artist?
Otto's Auto was syndicated in 1927-28. Sorry, haven't been able to pin down exact dates on this one.
Thanks to Cole Johnson who supplied the samples.
