In a Whirl Over Ronald Searle

Illustrator Ronald Searle's fanciful ink and watercolor drawings for magazines in the 50s and 60s are some of the most fun things you could ever lay your eyes upon.

Recently I posted some Searle artwork on my blog, and subsequently discovered the incredible Ronald Searle Tribute site by animation artist Matt Jones. Jones, whose own artwork is a treat in itself, is a devoted admirer and had the good fortune to interview the reclusive 88-year-old master in September.

The account of his meeting with Searle, and the treasure trove of eye candy, make this blog an instant favorite of mine.
