Hockey Art and Hockey Cartoon Art

Passion of a close friend who left too early. Hockey cartoon art and hockey art in general.

Montreal Gazette featured John Collins:

I find these in archived newspapers quite a lot. Seems that they were a bit of a cultural touchstone for a generation or two. I'd imagine they had a big influence on young fans, introducing them to the NHL's cast of characters.

Longer than that. Offshoot of illustrators and commercial artists before photography and printing technology developed. Figured out very early that models, spokespersons age or get into awkward situations but illustrations or cartoon characters have unlimited life spans without scandal. Plus they do not have to be paid.

Will post some Georges Latour material in a few days.

Ya quite the volume of interesting cartoon art going well back into the early 20th century to present day, the internet meme's & gifs replacing the printed form. Here for example one of the 1000's before the internet really eclipsed published form..

Georges Latour

George Latour was the illustrator at La Presse between 1910 and 1946, Montreal's leading French newspaper. Before hockey was broadcast on the radio, newspapers were the main source for reporting the game and for game imagery. Photography and print technology were still in their formative years so newspaper illustrators applied their talents to hockey. The colour illustrations found only in the color supplements, once a week, usually on Satuerday in Canada were cherished by many. Saved, framed, used to decorate rooms, offices, taverns, etc.

There is a fascinating blog about Georges Latour and his work with an excellent treatment of his hockey and other athletic works:
