The Taylor Morse Collection

Kirk Taylor was nice enough to pass on this interesting link. He has put up a website on largely forgotten cartoonist Wesley Morse. The website features images from the Taylor Morse collection, a collection of art found in the personal scrapbooks of 1920’s chorus girl Avonne Taylor, who inspired the artwork. Morse is best known for creating and drawing Bazooka Joe, and for drawing many of the better-drawn Tijuana bibles (Morse is featured in Craig Yoe‘s recent book Clean Cartoonist’s Dirty Drawings). Kirk is also working on a book on Morse, which sounds like it should be a very interesting read. Go see the site here.
