George Herriman (1880-1940) was born in New Orleans, Louisiana. He moved to Los Angeles, California with his family as a young child. At seventeen years old, Herriman sold his first illustrations to the Los Angeles Herald. By the turn of the twentieth century, he was published regularly in national magazines and newspapers. Around the same time he illustrated this button for Hassan Cigarettes, he was inventing his 'Krazy Kat' and 'The Dingbat Family' ('The Family Upstairs') strips. Herriman, also, worked anonymously with other cartoonists, such as Bud Fisher and Tad Dorgan.
