Stan Fine's "How to Stop Smoking..."

Maybe someone else can fill us in on cartoonist Stan Fine, the small amount of info I found online revealed art styles not at all similar to the one in "How to Stop Smoking Without Hardly Trying" (16 Detachable Jumbo Picture Postcards, Gem Publishing, 1964.) But this "Zany Gem Book O Cards" is full of super fun, super loose art, completely in line with greeting card illustrations of the 50's and 60's, and also very reminiscent of early Don Martin (see odd shaped heads and the occasional hinged foot!) And if you're a smoker, maybe these will help?

I used "take up drinking instead" when I quit smoking and "substitute other bad habits", though my other bad habit became eating, not pouncing on unsuspecting women in the park.

>not pouncing on unsuspecting women in the park.

Actually I think that's purse snatching... but could be taken as the same vice.
