World War II Illustrations By Weston Emmart

Illustrations from Alex Emmart grandfather's sketch books. Many grandparents tell stories with such vivid descriptions their families can almost visualize the action. Talented illustrator Weston Emmart took his storytelling skills a step further, drawing his memories to best capture and share every single moment. During his time serving in World War II, Emmart created a series of drawings depicting the cartoonish realities of war, from booming explosions to unwanted snoring. The internet caught a glimpse of the captivating comics when his grandson Alex posted them in honor of Memorial Day.
In an email to the Huffington Post Alex praised his grandfather's artistic talents, noting that after the war he continued his passion, pursuing a career in advertising while creating watercolors on the side. Emmart passed away a few days ago at the age of 90, survived by many children and grandchildren who are artists themselves.
