Exhibitions: Trog at the Cartoon Museum, London

Published On January 16, 2013 | By Joe Gordon | Comics, Conventions and events

The Pro Cartoonist’s blog points us to a recently opened exhibition at the Cartoon Museum in London featuring the cartoons and caricatures of the famous Trog (aka Wally Fawkes), who for many years created works for the Observer, Sunday Telegraph, Daily Mail (we won’t hold that against him), Punch and others. The exhibition also includes some work from the late, great Humphrey Lyttelton, for many years the chairman of one of my favourite radio shows I’m Sorry I Haven’t Got a Clue, who was a friend and fellow musician of Trog’s as well as a cartoonist and had collaborated with him on Trog’s long running Flook. I can’t resist sharing this wonderful caricature of Frankie Howerd by Trog that the PC blog found – “isn’t it marvellous?” “Oh, titter ye not!” The exhibition runs until April 28th.
