Higgins ink ad

Above is an ad for Higgins ink with artwork by Milton Caniff. I found this on the back cover of the January 1946 issue of American Artist.

Great! Thanks for posting. There must be another one like this, where Caniff explains his inking technique between brush and pen. I've never seen it but have heard a lot about it.

It's nice to know Higgins is still around at all (albeit, a brand name of some other company who acquired it through passing hands over the decades).

recall Higgins also had a book in inking techniques I'm still looking for as I'm sure it'll help me out!

I DO have that Higgins 20 page brochure on inking techniques from 1927. Maybe I'll get around to scan and post it some day.
