In the early 1930's Bud Sagendorf was a teenage assistant to original Popeye cartoonist E.C. Segar on his Thimble Theatre and Sappo comic strips. After Segar's death in 1938, Sagendorf illustrated marketing materials for King Features, eventually moving on to creating Popeye comic books starting in 1945.


Bud Sagendorf also wrote and illustrated (anonymously) much of the material in the Famous Artists Cartooning Course , especially Lesson 15 on Props and Backgrounds (See above sample)

Sherm: I love Bud Sagendorf! Great, loose style that always looked completely relaxed. Thanks for this post. -- Mykal

He also did a comic strip of his own in the misfifties calles Spur Line, which I will show on my blog one of these days. It's so jarringly like Popeye bt still notPopeye that it is disturbing!

I gotta reread all those Famous Artist Courses and brush back up on my inking skills now that I've got some experience. Thanks Sherm!

Thanks, Sherm. I sure do like Sagendorf. His comic books were never genius (Segar, sigh) but they were so good and likable. Supposedly he retold some of the big Segar Popeye adventures for Dell comic books. I'd love to see those some day.
