Hunting and Fishing Cartoons - Classicsby Richard Stubler

Once in a lifetime an artist rises above the rest to be regarded as the best in his profession. "One of the All-Time Greats." "A Living Classic."
Although he won't admit it, such is the case with cartoonist R. Stubler. Since his early youth he honed his outdoor skills in the hills and streams of Pennsylvania. As he grew to know and love the outdoors he developed a keen eye and appreciation of its wonderful beauty and magnificent animal life. And then he turned it upside down.
Armed with pen, paper and a wit as keen as his outdoors knowledge, Stubler's cartoons began to present this world in a whole new light: where the deer, and bear and turkey constantly outwit the hunter, the fish out angle the angler and Mother Nature herself seems to get in on the joke.
Drawn with his trademark, crisp linear style, there is never any need to scratch your chin and think twice to get the laugh. It is right up front (or maybe in the background), and whether you are an everyday outdoorsman or have ever spent even the briefest time hunting or fishing, you might see yourself in some of these situations.
As his son, I have been blessed to not only spend time in the woods and waters with him, but also in the studio, where I have seen a cartoon grow from just a quick "thumbnail sketch" to a bonafide "Classic." R. Stubler has been making people laugh for 50 years, and his new cartoons are as fresh and funny as ever. "I don't know where they come from, but they keep coming," he muses. And that is a wonderful thing for all of us.
So, if you are one of the millions of longtime R. Stubler fans, or new to his work, you are going to love this collection of classics. You will treasure itfor yourself and want to get copies for your friends and loved ones. Every cartoon in this book is a classic; every laugh an original. Sit back, relax and laugh yourself silly.
