An E. Simms Campbell Original On Attempted Bloggery
Attempted Bloggery shows us an original (non-New Yorker) original drawing by the late E. Simms Campbell. From my adventures online looking for/at original drawings, it’s always a treat to see one of Mr. Campbell’s original drawings show up — it doesn’t happen very often. 
Link here to see the Attempted Bloggery piece. 
According to the publisher’s text from arecent reissue of two of Mr. Campbell’s collections: “E. Simms Campbell was the first African-American cartoonist to be published in nationally distributed magazines.” Mr. Campbell is also the first known Black cartoonist published in The New Yorker (his first drawing appeared November 12, 1932). The first known Black female cartoonist published in The New Yorker is Emily Sanders Hopkins (formerly Emily Richards). Her first New Yorker drawing appeared in the issue of March 22, 2004.
Here’s E. Simms Campbell’s Spill A-Z entry: 
E. Simms Campbell  Born, 1906. Died, 1971. New Yorker work: 1932 -1942. Key collections: Cuties in Arms (1943); More Cuties in Arms (also 1943); and Chorus of Cuties (1953).
