brilliant. the gatx one is the real full fat deal... thanks again for collecting and showing these. I once slept in and missed the chance to buy one of his books from a junk store. It was in the window at 2am and long gone by 10.. i still kick myself over that, sometimes if that grows boring i kick other people near me.

also I looked through the links there and was rather amazed at the obvious influence our pal Gerald Scarfe gleaned from big Ron... I never really spotted it before

Yes, & even more so for Ralph Steadman I think. I feel Searle has influenced virtually EVERY cartoonist since he started!

I saw press and poster ads for Lemon Hart as a small child in the late '50's and they gave me nightmares about the 'thin yellow man'! Later, as a teen, I grew to appreciate Searle's and Robinson's work in Molesworth and other stories and cartoons. Haven't acquied a taste for the rum ...
