Fawkes Retires Due to Poor Eyesight

image

Wally Fawkes, a well-known musician, cartoonist and caricaturist has given up his position doing the latter two (and primarily the last) for the Telegraph due to fading eyesight. Fawkes may be best known in comics circles for being the artist on the feature Flook, which moved from children's stories to satire during a healthy run in the Daily Mail that began in 1949. He worked under the pen name "Trog."

Duke Ellington, by Fawkes
