What a talent!

[Bill, the late Una Stubbs and me!]

Just found a photograph that reminded me of the recent passing of cartoonist Bill Tidy at the age of 89.

Bill did not receive any formal artistic training, instead working for the Royal Engineers in the Army before becoming a cartoonist.

Famous for his comic strips in Private Eye and the Daily Mirror, he was also known for his quick-fire work for television programmes including his appearance on our (HTV-West) It’s Nearly Saturday live shows back in the late 80’s – if my memory serves me well.
