Some fascinating insights into the working methods of the master, Ronald Searle, from a man who spent a decade studying and collecting the great man’s art.

Matt Jones, who has developed a reputation of his own as a story artist working in animation, says Searle is often described as “one of the greatest graphic satirists of the twentieth century”. Very few would argue with that description.

Take the time to click the link to this article on the Cartoon Brew website where Matt Jones’ astute observations are accompanied by a fascinating 1958 short film showing Searle at work. (Note in particular the upside down nib technique!)

Matt Jones’ ‘Ronald Searle’s America’ is available for purchase here.
