Dancin’ Lines

Lou Myers was a hilarious cartoonist with an expressively lunatic line. He was a master, sadly forgotten.

It speaks volumes about radio and promotion in the 1950s when art sold the soft-sell.

    Mr. Heller, I remember the work of Lou Myers very well. I think I have a copy of a Myers-illustrated U&lc somewhere at home. Now I must go digging for it. Am I wrong in thinking he illustrated a children’s book?
