Ten Comic Strip Artists In The 40s Were Asked To Draw Their Characters Blindfolded

Published 5 years ago

Back in 1947, LIFE Magazine asked ten contemporary comic strip artists to draw their famous characters for them. The catch? They had to do it blindfolded!

You might assume that having to draw the same character over and over again for years would make these artists capable of drawing them even with their eyes shut. If so, the results of this funny experiment will probably surprise you. You’ll notice that many of these artists got the details right but got the placement of those details so wrong.
