Dan S. Decarlo

When trying to put together some posts on vintage spanking cartoons I came across the works from Dan S. Decarlo. It is a bit difficult for me to file this artist under ‘vintage artists’ because he died in 2011. He was however most active as illustrator in the 50’s and 60’s. It all started for him when he responded to an add and became illustrator for teen-humor series Jeanie.

He went uncredited, as was typical for most comic-book writers and artists of the era, and he recalled in 2001, “I went on with her maybe ten books. They used to call me ‘The Jeanie Machine’ because that was all Stan used to give me, was Jeanie…. Then he took me off Jeanie and he gave me Millie the Model. That was a big break for me. It wasn’t doing too well and somehow when I got on it became quite successful.”
