Day 23 – Otto Soglow

A very happy birthday to Otto Soglow, born in New York 110 years ago today. Otto was a cartoonist, best remembered for his creation The Little King, which ran first in The New Yorker, then in Randolph Hearst’s King Features Syndicate. Lambiek has an overview of his comic strip career, and this gallery has examples of his cartoons used in advertising campaigns of the 1940s and 1950s.
