About Bill the Sketch Artist

Among his many talents, Bill is an excellent sketch artist. His letters include dozens of humorous sketches depicting everyday scenes of his army life. Whether he's sitting in a hospital wheelchair, mopping the floor or frozen solid to his M-1 while qualifying at the rifle range, Bill seems to capture the moment perfectly in his sketches.


  1. This was the period when Sgt. Bill Mauldin was cartooning for Stars and Stripes from Italy. Here is a link to some of his best numbers.

  2. I believe that Bill Mauldin did more than any journalist to inform the public about the daily trials and tribulations of the typical "dogface" in combat. Bill Taylor's drawings are a mix of Joe and Willy and Sad Sack.
