    Famous Cartoonist Button 29

    Peter Loft contributed memorable stories and strips to Snarf, Bizarre Sex, Smile, Consumer Comix, Comix Book, Bizarre Sex and other underground comix, as well as covers and strips for the midwest underground newspaper, The Bugle. Frogs were a frequent component in his strips and covers, and are relected in his whimsical self-portrait. With charming characters such as Vincent the Teabag and Flooty the Turtle, Loft would no doubt have had a very successful career as a cartoonist but before peaking he moved to Europe and changed careers, becoming involved in the computer industry.


    About the Buttons:

    Pinback Jack issued this "Famous Cartoonist Series" of self-portrait buttons back in 1975. All of the participating cartoonists were alive and created self-portraits specifically for this button set. With very few exceptions, the images have not appeared elsewhere in print. The buttons were distributed by Krupp Comic Works and Phil Seuling. This set was originally announced as 52 buttons, and the alphabetical numbering reflects that. However, two artists (Neal Adams and Rick Meyerowitz) turned in their self-portraits late, after the first 52 had already been designed. They were included in the set, but numbered 53 and 54 respectively, out of alphabetical sequence. Steve Krupp's Curio Shoppe is now the exclusive source of the remaining limited inventory.

    All the color buttons in this set are metal with clear celluloid covers, are 2.25 inches in diameter, and have "safety" pinbacks. This button is listed for sale as an individual, but we do offer the complete set as well.
