The First Lady of Cowboy Cartoonists

I had the “honor” of seeing someone tonight that I have not seen since probably 1997 or 1998. This person gave me some of the best advice about my cartoons that anyone could have. She was honest and abrupt and for that I appreciate that advice more than anything.

I consider Ace Reid to be the Greatest Cowboy Cartoonist that ever was, and although there have been other great ones and there are some really good ones now, Ace was and is the measuring stick by which we are all measured.

If Ace Reid was the Greatest Cowboy Cartoonist then I consider Madge Reid to be The First Lady of Cowboy Cartoonists.

She told me almost 20 years ago when she first saw my cartoons that I needed to be myself, and that I needed to find my own “niche” … at the time I didn’t understand that comment, and it took me quite a few more years until I did.

I believe that I have found my “niche” and I attribute a large amount of that to Madge Reid.

As I said I had the “honor” of seeing her again tonight at The Museum of Western Art in Kerrville, Texas where she spoke about Ace and his cartoons.

Thank you Madge Reid,

JP Rankin
