Raymond, Alex > Comic Strip Art > Raymond, Alex
Alexander Gillespie Raymond (b. October 2, 1909, New Rochelle, New York- d. September 6, 1956, Westport, Connecticut) was an American comic strip artist, best known for creating the serial Flash Gordon in 1933.

The serial hit the silver screen three years later with Buster Crabbe and Jean Rogers as the leading players. Other strips he drew include Secret Agent X-9, Rip Kirby, Jungle Jim, Tim Tyler's Luck, and Tillie the Toiler. Raymond received a Reuben Award from the National Cartoonists Society in 1949 for his work on Rip Kirby.

Alex Raymond attended Iona Prep in New Rochelle, New York on a scholarship and played on the Gaels' football team. He joined the US Marines Corp in 1944 and served in the Pacific theatre during World War II. Alex Raymond was killed in an automobile accident in Westport, Connecticut, and is buried in Saint Johns Roman Catholic Cemetery in Darien, Connecticut.

His realistic style and skillful use of "feathering" (a shading technique in which a soft series of parallel lines helps to suggest the contour of an object) has continued to be an inspiration for generations of cartoonists.

During the accident which led to his untimely demise, he was said to have remarked (by the surviving passenger of the accident) on the fact that a pencil on the dashboard seemed to be floating in relation to the plummet of the vehicle. This is, if nothing else, a myth that would serve him proudly. consider Raymond to be one the greatest artists of all times. We are happy and proud to present a selection of his Rip Kirby dailies. The Flash Gordon Sundays by Raymond are already out of reach with prices well over $20.000 for a page.  -  E-mail:
