Tiny Tim by Stanley Link

As a teenager, Stanley J. Link took a correspondence course in cartooning. At age sixteen he found his first cartooning job with a Chicago-based animated cartoon company. After freelancing for some time in the early 1920s, Link was hired as an assistant on 'The Gumps'. In the meantime he introduced the popular panel 'Ching Chow' as a daily feature for the News-Tribune group and started his own strip 'Tiny Tim' in 1933.

'Tiny Tim' began as a Sunday feature and was about a boy shrunk to minuscule size. It became a great favorite, especially with children. Stanley Link got into serious trouble with his syndicate however, when he refused to continue 'The Gumps' after Sidney Smith's death in 1935. 'Tiny Tim' eventually folded and Stan Link started a family strip called 'The Dailys', which he drew until shortly before his death in 1957, at the age of 63.
