No one ever starts out as a Rembrandt. But Rembrandt started out as a cartoonist. — Mort Walker

Legendary cartoonist Mort Walker is remembered as the creator of the popular comic strips Beetle Bailey and Hi and Lois. In his book, Lexicon of Comicana, he reflected on the artistic potential to be found in every person. He wrote,

“Every child is a cartoonist. We all begin by drawing crude symbols of people and houses and trees. No one ever starts out as a Rembrandt. But Rembrandt started out as a cartoonist.”
