Bonzo's Latest: This Week's Studdy Featured Print

Bonzo's Latest: This Week's Studdy

Famous dog, just after he had finally been christened with the name 'Bonzo'. He appears with a swollen eye after fighting with a wasp. George Ernest Studdy (1878-1948), was the creator of 'Bonzo', a small dog with saucer-like eyes and indiscriminate breeding who first appeared in the Sketch in 1922. The 'Bonzo' craze swept the world resulting in postcards, annuals, toys and other merchandise. Studdy also produced a large body of work for the Sketch before and after Bonzo including his later creation, Ooloo the cat. His early cartoon dogs were simply known as the 'Studdy Dog' until readers demanded a name and Bruce Ingram, the ILN editor, suggested his immortal moniker.

'Pro Italia' - Allies and Brothers-In-Arms for Justice

'Pro Italia' - Allies and Brothers-In-Arms for Justice. Drawn for an Italian Celebration on Italian Day, 7th October 1915, and disposed of in the streets in the form of a souvenir pocket handkerchief (Original drawing in the hands of the Italian Red Cross Society). Fortunino Matania, Ri (1881-1963). One of the most accomplished realistic illustrators and artists of his time, his wartime work was immensely popular and appeared in nearly every major news magazine, Allied, Neutral and Central Powers alike. Literally tens of millions of readers saw wartime events through the medium of Matania's weekly illustrations and, as such, he played an important role in defining people's mental image of what Great War battlefield scenes and soldiers looked like.

This Weeks' Studdy - As Master Sees Me! by G. E. Studdy

'Studdy dog' shortly after his complete evolution into 'Bonzo'. The dog is turning away in disgust from his owner's portrait of him, painted in the style of Picasso.
