Obituary: William W. "Bill" Campbell

I'm a bit late with this news but back at the beginning of the month it was learned that William W. "Bill" Campbell passed away at the age of 97. Campbell was a freelance cartoonist and illustrator. He is best remembered for his invention of the iconic Weird-Ohs model kits for Hawk Models. He started out as a box art illustrator for Hawk Plastic Models. After coming to the conclusion that the model car market was saturated, he made up some prototypes of monsters in hot rods which eventually became the Weird-Oh Car-icky-tures line of plastic models which also featured his artwork on the boxes.
R.I.P. Bill Campbell.
