A sample of Wolverton’s work:
I recently purchased “The Wolverton Bible” through Amazon. I have always enjoyed Wolverton’s illustration. The book includes an introduction by Grant Geissman, and I found this fun fact:
Before becoming a cartoonist, Wolverton had actually started out as a young Vaudeville performer in theaters in Oregon and Washington. “Eventually I heard or read,” recalled Wolverton, “that a two bit actor earns even less than a two bit cartoonist”
The introduction goes on to say the Wolerton was a devout Christian, and took the job of illustrating the bible very seriously.
