ex-Eagle artists on show in Ladybird exhibition (1)

The work of a number of ex-Eagle artists can be seen at a new exhibition which has just opened at Reading Museum

Today I'm just going to show some artwork by Frank Humphris - Frank is best remembered as the artist on the Riders of the Range strip in the 1950s but he also drew Blackbow, the Cheyenne in Eagle in the 1960s.

Post-Eagle he, along with a number of other ex-Eagle artists, went on to illustrate a number of Ladybird books and I particularly remembering loving his western books. 

Here's the front cover of 'The Ladybird book of the cowboy'...the image is called 'A bronco-buster at work'   

'Human endeavour' from the book Danger Men

From 'The story of the Indians of the Western plains' 

'Stunt men at work' from Danger Men

More to come tomorrow!
