More Milt Stein

Cartoons and dinosaurs: 2 eternally cool things.
Here's some more amazing Milt Stein cartoon art.
He's obviously an animator but also influenced by the graphic looks of such comic strip artists as Herriman and Sterret.

So cute and so stylish at the same time. A rare combination.
And great backgrounds too!

Milt understood the graphic power of stars.
Not only did he draw nice star shapes (not easy to do!) but he always composed them into interesting patterns that framed the action.

Such a killer command of graphic hierarchy...

This cover is by someone else. I like how it looks like a completely different character.

Masterly comic graphic sense.
