Abstract:

Cartoonist and painter Robert Brown was born on February 3, 1936, in Morrison, Tennessee and grew up in Chicago. He graduated from Englewood High School in 1954. In 1955, Brown joined the United States Air Force. Brown attended art classes at Wilson Junior College. In 1961, while a student at the University of Illinois, Hugh Hefner of Playboy magazine accepted one of Brown’s cartoons. During Brown’s career as a cartoonist, he was best known for Playboy magazine’s "Granny," which became a permanent fixture of the magazine. Brown was also a painter of humorous black genre paintings some of which are part of the extensive art collection of Bill and Camille Cosby. Another celebrity, singer Johnny Mathis, has a wall in his office covered with Brown’s golf cartoons. His cartoons also appeared in Ebony, Ebony Junior, Jet and Esquire magazines. Brown passed away on July 2, 2007 at age 71.
