@s 1936 Noel Sickles Scorchy Smith Original Daily Art For Sale

Noel Sickles Scorchy Smith daily dated 10/13/1936

Noel Sickles pursued his art training at the mail-order Landon School of Illustrating and Cartooning. In 1927, he ventured into the offices of the Columbus Dispatch where he first met the man who would become a life-long friend, Milton Caniff. With the advent of the Great Depression, one might expect that Sickles would hang onto whatever work he had managed to secure, but after returning to newspaper work in Columbus for only a year or so, Sickles' restlessness compelled him to reject a steady paycheck in favor of a new venture with Milt Caniff. The two young bucks had now been friends for about 5 years. Sickles and Caniff formed a studio and hustled the ad business, turning out work at a furious pace that neither could hope to maintain for long. The venture lasted only 3 months. Caniff received a job offer from the Associated Press in New York and Sickles , in desperation, took on work in Cincinnati drawing theatre ads for RKO. In 1933, Milton Caniff was able to rescue his friend from his artistic purgatory. "Please come to New York," wrote Caniff from his office at the AP, "We have a drawing board waiting for you." And Sickles’ career was born! Caniff and Sickles invented a new form of graphic storytelling and created a chiaroscuro style that still influences artists to this day.
