Addison Morton Walker (September 3, 1923 – January 27, 2018) was an American comic strip writer, best known for creating the newspaper comic strip 'Beetle Bailey.' Walker went to New York to pursue a career in cartooning. He began doing Spider, a one-panel series for The Saturday Evening Post, about a lazy, laid-back college student. When he decided he could make more money doing a multi-panel comic strip, 'Spider' morphed into 'Beetle Bailey,' eventually distributed by King Features Syndicate to 1,800 newspapers in more than 50 countries for a combined readership of 200 million daily.

Mort Walker
"Beetle Bailey and Sarge Snorkel"
Circa 1970

Original Painting
Ink, opaque watercolors, and background dye-spattering over graphite on illustration board

Signed on face, lower right

Complete in vintage upholstered matte and frame
Finished Dimensions: 32 x 26.5 inches

Fine Condition

A tireless experimenter in the borderlands between cartooning and painterly technique, Walker developed this immense composition as a fusion of comic art, the Pop Art movement, and Abstract Expressionism. Sarge Snorkel is up to his usual drill of chewing out PFC Beetle Bailey -- but this time, Sarge's cussing comes out in wild bursts of color. Beetle is at once chagrined and oblivious.
