Description:
A rescued archive of vintage New York City from a forgotten ash can artist
After cartoonist, educator, and editor James Sturm discovered the vintage book "Mopey Dick and the Duke," he set off to find out more about the author, the deceased and unknown cartoonist Denys Wortman. Sturm immediately took note of the masterful drawingscasual, confident, and brimming with personalityand wondered how this cartoonist escaped his radar. After some online sleuthing, Sturm connected with Wortmans son, who relayed that an archive of more than five thousand illustrations was literally sitting in his shed in dire need of rescuing. For more than thirty-five years, the illustrations had been fighting such elements as hungry rodents, rusty paper clips, and even a blizzard. Wortmans son also had drawers full of his fathers correspondence, including letters and holiday cards from William Steig and Walt Disney. Original artwork by artists and personal friendsincluding Peggy Bacon, Milt Gross, Isabel Bishop, and Reginald Marshwere also saved. The fact that Wortmans luminary peers held him in the highest regard, coupled with his artistic prowess, makes his absence from both fine art and comics history puzzling. So Sturm and Brandon Elston set out to create a beautiful tribute to the forgotten master.
