Sold out edition. This is number 22/35. The son of an Air Force officer, Colonel Clarence Horton II and Ann French, Walt was born in 1949. From a tender age he always had a way of making people smile. It wasn’t a surprise then when he chose cartooning as his first career. Walt went to the University of Colorado on a track scholarship in 1968, but his academic education wasn’t what prepared him for his life as an artist. That just came naturally, with a lot of hard work, learning as he went, an innate propensity to draw flourished. It wasn’t until Walt reached his mid-forties that sculpture entered his life. Once that door opened it didn’t take long for the three-dimensional world of bronze sculpture to become his passion. He could still make people smile, grin and laugh out loud, but now it was a different medium and he could have twice as much fun doing it. To the surprise of everyone Walt passed away in his sleep on March 28th 2010. He’s greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. His art is still with us and still does the job Walt intended, to make the world a happier place.
