Obscurity of the Day: Laugh and Learn
Yet another New York Evening Graphic find, Laugh and Learn ran in 1926. What a shame that this is Kerry Conway's only newspaper cartooning credit. That art is absolutely top-notch. His anatomy and expressions are obviously not the product of an untrained hand, and I love the style, which seems to harken back to a look that was popular way back in the mid-19th century.
Anyone know what happened to Kerry Conway?
I did found out, though, that "Laugh and Learn" was apparently collected in a book format once, in 1930.
Thanks extra much for the info on this book. It must be quite a rarity as there wasn't a single copy on ABE. I'll definitely have my eye peeled for it, though.
I guess if Conway had a book published in 1930, there must be more to the story than a short-run strip in the Graphic in 1926!
