STARR WOOD (1870-1944) ORIGINAL PENCIL, PEN, BRUSH, BLACK INK GAG CARTOON, 10 x 12.5, on heavy card stock, by 19th-early 20th century British Punch cartoonist. This cartoon shows an older man asking a group of women about kissing. Wood's handwritten caption (the publisher would later set it in type) reads: “Why do you girls kiss each other when you meet?” “Maybe it’s because some of us would never get any practice otherwise.” There are a few publisher/printer notations in pencil, general age toning, a few minor stains, otherwise in fine condition.
STARR WOOD turned freelance cartoonist after his first drawing was published in 1892. In addition to his Punch cartoons he contributed to several other British publications, including: Chums, Fun, Judy, Chips, Parade, John Bull, Bystander, Humorist, Passing Show, Tatler and Strand from 1898-1938.
