Snappy (Crack Comics 14)

Art Beeman was an American newspaper cartoonist and comic book artist. He was born Arthur Dubbert Beeman in Los Angeles County in 1914, and had his sports cartoons published in the San Diego Union by 1933. Beeman was as an artist of humor features for the comic books published by Quality Comics in the early 1940s, carrying titles like 'Homer Doodle', 'Inferior Man', 'Kidding the Kids', 'Miss Winky', 'Snappy' and 'Tommy Tinkle'. He also drew 'K. P. Jones' for Harvey Comics. Also during the 1940s he was an assistant on the newspaper feature 'Seein' Stars' for King Features Syndicate.

In the first half of the 1950s he drew a newspaper feature called 'Those Were the Days', that ran at least in The New Salem Journal. Beeman subsequently found employment in the American space program at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. He provided art to space-themed books like 'Mars Revisited' by Donald L. Cyr (1959), and 'Mariner Mission to Venus' by Harold J. Wheelock (1963).
