Meet the Author

Lichty was born George Maurice Lichtenstein (1905-1983). At 16 he sold his first cartoon to Judge and later was the editor of The Gargoyle—University of Michigan's humor magazine. He began his newspaper career doing cartoons and illustrations for the Chicago Daily Times and was also a contributor to Collier's.

Grin and Bear It became syndicated in 1932 and won the National Cartoonists Society Newspaper Panel Cartoon Award four times—1956, 1960, 1962, and 1964. Lichty's style, known as the "animation smear technique," influenced Joe Teller (of Penn and Teller) in his 2000 release of "When I'm Dead All This Will Be Yours!": Joe Teller—A Portrait by His Kid, as well as artist Ed Ruscha.
