Bloghorn’s featured Artist of the Month for February 2010 is cartoonist Robert Duncan. He specialises in cartoons for advertising and his client list includes many well-known companies. He was one-fifth of the recent winning team of cartoonists on the Eggheads TV quiz and hs comedy play Cluedo holds the all-time box office record at the Theatre Royal Windsor. His book, A Rum Do is a bestseller in Barbados (but nowhere else). He estimates he has produced over 3000 greetings card designs in a long and varied career.
