Malcolm Douglas, 1954-2009
Lew Stringer reports
that comics artist and illustrator Malcolm Douglas, who worked as JT Dogg, died in late March after a long struggle with cancer. As Dogg, Douglas contributed art to the "The Street-Hogs!" and "Ham Dare, Pig of the Future" features that ran in Oink
, frequently commandeering the color spread at the publication's center. Douglas continued onto a number of what Steve Holland describes as adult comics
for comics publications and magazines, and drew a strip for the Manchester United match publications featuring the team's mascot. On his web site, Douglas discussed a future potential return
to making comics.
Douglas was also a musician with a specific interest in folk music. A tribute to his work with the Yorkshire Folk Arts group and to that area of culture in a variety of ways including as a performer can be found here
An obituary at the Guardian
