  3. Good Dry British Humor
    Do we have a new young artist(s) coming up? Or like most of automotive print and digital there is no 'market' for the young pens? Unlike now that everyone is a photographer with their phones, an artist calls for real talent.

    Howdy, all... Yes, the style is familiar. Tom Medley often poked fun at the sporty-car crowd. (This was odd, considering he owned Porsches and Peugeots!) Here's a few examples, one a Stroker McGurk; the other a drawing for AutoCar magazine. SM Full Panel - Tally Ho!.jpg 01.16.150012.jpg

    And, if you interested in owning EVERY Stroker McGurk cartoon, you need a copy of "The Amazing Adventures of Stroker McGurk," in traditional comic book format. www.strokerbymedley.com

    Bomber, thanks for sharing to those of us that don't get out much. Mr. Groves had the "knack"!

    Russell Brockbank was another British cartoonist that specialized in things automotive, often with Major Upsett in the picture. His cartoons appeared in several magazines through the fifties.

    I was inspired early on by all these comic artists. I wish I had the true talent for art that I once had. I'm afraid that, now, all I could do is copy the work of the masters.

    I found that, while I can draw and paint with realism, my cartooning is not consistent. That's the difficult thing about cartoons, keeping your characters the same way from page to page. I never mastered it.
