CARTOONIST DAVID ZIGGY Greene is well-known for his Scene and Heard ‘cartoon reportage’ series (above) in Private Eye.
As much as he hates being interviewed about his work, he was willing to come forward and present this public profile piece for the Professional Cartoonists’ Organisation blog. “I’m so bad about promoting myself that many close,longterm friends never know a thing about my work.”
not only does David work for Private Eye but also Time Out (above) and even, occasionally, the French satirical paper Charlie Hebdo (below).
“I’ve just taken on a regular gig for Brazil’s largest newspaper but their insistence on an interview is putting this in doubt. I’m thinking of pulling out!”
As well as his publicly published work, David draws for business magazines, usually simply drawing strips to supplied scripts.
David’s blog can be found HERE where you will see a vast array of recent and not so recent cartoons and illustrations.
A keen supporter of the concept of self-publishing and the ‘comics scene’ about which he says: “There are far too many events to sustain the ‘scene’. That’s not my opinion. The scene has started acknowledging it.” An interesting article on just this topic HERE.
