It wasn't a good fit for Ivie — from the first he seemed to be at odds with the curriculum that Hogarth was offering. Because of the declining state of both the comic book and comic strip markets, Hogarth turned the emphasis of the school more towards other forms of commercial art, such as gag cartoons and magazine illustrations.
Nevertheless, the fact that Ivie had the opportunity to meet other aspiring comic book artist studying at the school was of immeasurable value. The images posted here represent some of the work being done by his fellow students at the time, or soon after their graduation.
In combination, this work gives one a unique glimpse into the sort of work Hogarth's school was generating at that particular point in the history of commercial art.
The first two pieces here are by the maestro himself, Burne Hogarth, most likely done as class demonstrations.
