Ginger Meggs Cartoonist Injures Hand In Freak Accident

imageMike Lynch uncovered a news link that indicates Ginger Meggs cartoonist Jason Chatfield injured his drawing hand after being caught in a taxi door and dragged for several yards early on Sunday morning. Lynch direct readers to Chatfield's blog for the harrowing details here. They're looking for the cabbie and with a call to a cab company instigating the action it sounds like they have a good chance of finding him. If you've ever been around cartoonists long enough, you know how protective they are of their drawing hand, so I wish Chatfield a quick and speedy recovery in whatever way he might feel the effects, and I'm happy to hear he's up and around and being proactive. Chatfield took over on the iconic and modestly syndicated Australian strip four years ago.
