About David Wright

Pin-up painter David Wright created the newspaper strip 'Carol Day' in 1956. Wright was born in 1912 into an artistic dynasty - his parents were both artists. David Wright had a talent for drawing women, and therefore he became famous as a pin-up artist. His first pin-up appeared as a loose insert in 1941 in The Sketch magazine. Wright's first comics work, starring 'Kit Carson', appeared in Cowboy Picture Library #56 of July 1952. For Titbits, he created girl strips like 'Judy' (1953) and 'Jo'. In 1957 he did 'Danger Treads Softly' which was painted in black and white. The 'Carol Day' strip debuted in the Daily Mail on 10 September 1956. It was a soap opera comic about a cool and elegant fashion model, which ran first in the Daily Mail (1956-1967), and then reappeared after Wright's death in the Sunday Express in 1971, at this point drawn by Kenneth Inns. His son Patrick Wright is also a comic artist. Text (c) Lambiek
