Gus Arriola, Eldon Dedini and Hank Ketcham were iconic cartoonists and great friends living on the Monterey Peninsula, each with their distinctive style of caricature drawing. Gustavo "Gus" Arriola was an American comic strip cartoonist and animator, primarily known for the comic strip Gordo, which ran from 1941 through 1985. Eldon Dedini's career as a cartoonist is best known from his long association with 'The New Yorker', starting in 1950 and in 1960 for 'Playboy' magazine until his death in January 2006. Dedini also spent two years working for Disney Studios in the Story Department. And everyone knows and loves Hank Ketcham's beloved Dennis the Menace.
