“Preface: One of the beaut things about being the cartoonist at a daily newspaper is the amount of kids that contact you to find out how to go about drawing cartoons.
This book has primarily been put together for those ‘kids’, which includes adults and even grannies, who aspire to cartooning, hopefully encouraging them to have a go at it.
Thumbing through this lot you will see how much style can change by increased work load.  Before joining The News in Adelaide, one cartoon a week was about my speed, today four a day is average, before the 8 a.m. daily deadline.  The only advice I can give is if you love cartooning then just keep practicing.  Copy other artists work.  To become a good cricketer you could do well to copy David Hookes’ techniques, then later develop you own style.  The same applies to cartooning.”
