Johnstone & Cushing & Boys' Life
Saturday, May 27, 2006
This past week I made reference several times to art agency Johnstone & Cushing, which was likely responsible for several of the best drawn comicstrip ads I showed you. But what I wasn't entirely aware of was how firmly entrenched J&C was with Boys' Life, producing the magazine's entire comics section for many years.
Here are just a few examples of the kind of work J&C artists drew on a monthly basis for Boys' Life.
For those interested in reading the fascinating history of Johnstone & Cushing, its rise and its fall, and how that demise was inexorably linked to the Boys' Life contract, Tom Heintjes has written an excellent indepth article here.
