(1875 - 1974)
James Guilford (Jimmy) Swinnerton was active/lived in California. James Swinnerton is known for desert landscape and Indian figure painting, cartoons.
A pioneer comic artist, James Swinnerton is most often
credited in histories of the funnies for things he never did. He never
drew anything titled Little Bears and Tigers, and the feature he did
draw about bears was not the first newspaper strip. In fact, it wasnt a
comic strip at all. A talented artist, Swinnerton did, however,
contribute significantly to the development of comics in the more than
60 years he worked as a cartoonist. His most successful strip was
Little Jimmy, and he's the one who introduced his friend George Herriman
to the Arizona desert that became the permanent locale for Krazy Kat.
Swinnerton, too, put the desert country to good use in his own work.
