Next: How To Tell A Walt Clinton Character Layout

This is Walt Clinton, one of the early layout artists/designers for H and B cartoons.
I like him a lot.
The main designers/layout artists in the earliest HB cartoons were Ed Benedict - the most stylish and inventive, Dick Bickenbach - good but somewhat blander and Walt Clinton.
Tony Rivera came later and was the worst of the bunch.
These frame grabs are all Clinton layouts from Quick Draw McGraw cartoons.

Walt Clinton's style is very distinct and I'll show you how to recognize his designs in the next post so you can be a hit with all the lonely wives at the Christmas party.
