Mort Walker - Beetle Bailey & the National Cartoon Museum

Postby Charles » Tue Jan 25, 2011 3:34 pm

For 60 years, Mort Walker has drawn the Beetle Baily comic strip. A cartoonist, an artist, and an activist.

How is he an activist?

Well, for one thing, he didn't sit around waiting for executives or fan boys to start this. He initiated the National Cartoonist Museum and has saved thousands of original works of art from oblivion for future generations to enjoy and appreciate.

Presented by the Wall Street Journal, watch the video and learn more about Mort Walker and his efforts.
