Cartoons

motive magazine began publishing Jim Crane’s cartoons in the March issue, 1950. Crane was 23 years old. His association with motive continued through the 1960’s. During this period Cartoons  also ran in series in Ave Maria magazine and in the United Church Herald. Four collections of cartoons were published: What Other Time (’53, Source Press), On Edge (’65, John Knox Press), The Great Teaching Machine (’66, John Knox Press), Inside Out (’67, Harper and Row.)

The volume of original cartoons produced in the ’50s and ’60’s is staggering during a time when Crane was producing art work, teaching and helping to support a family. Following is but a sampling of his cartoon work.
