E.C. Segar, Cartoon Legend

For anyone unfamiliar with E.C. Segar ( pronounced like a fine cuban Ciiigar) he is the cartoonist responsible for the famous Popeye the Sailorman comic, who made his first appearance in the Thimble Theatre comic by Segar. He has been a source of inspiration for a tiny cartoonist like me. He honed his craft by a correspondence course in cartooning, mainly doing the work by candlelight in his crumby apartment at midnight after working all day. I just love the characters he created, I just had to give him a little recognition on my site.
