Original Drawing Signed, in black pen, 9.5 x 4 inches. RUSS WESTOVER.
RUSS WESTOVER

(1886 –1966) American cartoonist best known for his long-running comic strip, "Tillie the Toiler."

Original Drawing Signed, in black pen, 9.5 x 4 inches.

Westover has drawn a character on verso noted in another hand in pencil as "self-portrait." The caption above this curly haired man in shirt and tie reads, "Aunt Min says - ELMER- I LOVE PEACE SO MUCH THAT I'LL FIGHT LIKE A WILD CAT TO KEEP IT." Westover signs in the lower right, "Russ Westover to my friend Elmer Lewis." Two small rust stains in corners of upper margin, some aging to the paper and slight soiling along the edges. A timeless cartoon.
