Odd Einarson

Odd Einarson, (1910 - 1991) was a Norwegian cartoonist.
Odd Einarson studied at the Arts Academy of Munich under the cartoonist Olaf Gulbransson (1932) and at the Norwegian Art Academy under Søren Onsager (1940).
He worked in paint and drawings with satirical commentary and was associated with the Brochmann movement of the Alternative Society.
Together with colleague artist Ernst Berentsen, he published the socio-critical comic book You're Delaying Time in 1935, and after the Second World War he started, among other things, the journals The Magic Mirror and Paragraph 100.
However, Odd Einarson was first and foremost known as a bohemian with a beret (alpelue), lush beard and his truck named "Ruslebo". He spent only three to four minutes on a cartoon drawing of interested passers-by and during the period from 1947 to 1985, portrayed over half a million Scandinavians under the signature "Einarson".
Odd Einarson’s works has been purchased by the National Gallery.
