RIP Ronald Searle

Copyright: Ronald Searle

It’s all Ronald Searle’s fault! Had I not been left as child to browse my father’s collection of books, from “1066 ad all that”,through to “Molesworth” and finally St Trinians”. I might not have fallen in love with illustration and drawing.
God knows, my parents tried to steer me into a proper job. I didn’t even do art at school, but thanks to the mischievous conjurings’ of Mr Searle, I developed a habit of doodling my schoolmates and other characters. That led onto posters and eventually, after a failed attempt at banking, a job in a studio. So you see Ronald is to blame for sewing the seed. Over time I have often referred to his extraordinary life and work for both amusement and inspiration, so it is a very sad day to learn that he has finally put down the mantle. His work lives on, but I feel the World is slightly poorer.
