E. Simms Campbell and Jean-Gabriel Domergue in Esquire, August 1939

E. Simms Campbell takes a break from his usual cartoons of attractive women and instead tries to get inside the mind of a dog who has been left alone in the house. This dog's-eye view makes for a nice enough drawing, but one wishes the resulting gag were a bit less obvious.
"I'll give them 'til nine-thirty—if they aren't here then, I break training!"
E. Simms Campbell
Esquire, August 1939, page 54

On the other side of the page, the magazine features the work of Jean-Gabriel Domergue, whose favorite subject is very much the same as Esquire's favorite subject.

Note:  Good girl! Attempted Bloggery is surveying the work of cartoonist E. Simms Campbell (1906-1971). Readers can assist by providing high-resolution scans or photographs of hidden-away original Campbell art or of other obscure published works, even including more from this issue of Esquire.

This page of printed cartoons is available on eBay at the time of this post.
