Anderson and Stamaty

Brad Anderson, creator of the Marmaduke daily panel and Sunday strip, was born in 1924. He has been at cartooning a long time; he sold his first cartoons when he was 15 years old.

Stanley Stamaty was a gag cartoonist, father of children's book author/artist Mark Alan Stamaty. I wish I knew more about Stamaty the elder. I love his spontaneous and expressive drawings.

All of these cartoons are from YOU'VE GOT ME IN THE SUBURBS, edited by Lawrence Larier, published by Dodd, Mead & Company.

Thanks for posting these Stanley Stamaty cartoons. Mark Alan Stamaty has a two-page strip about his parents at pp 78-79 of the October 31, 2011 issue of the New Yorker. It shows his father (1916-79) sketching cartoons until minutes before his death of a heart attack at age 63.
