Post by Peter Gray »

Looking at the amount of work and different characters he did maybe a book on his art would be a good seller..his work still sells well in the reprint Oor Wullie and The Broons reprint books..

Jimmy's Magic Patch...Rover covers..Desperate Dan...Mickey the Monkey..Ginger..Lord Snooty..Ship wrecked circus...Danny long legs..Biffo..etc..etc..

Not just the covers, Peter. He also provided a number of heading block illustrations for serials in The Rover, and similar for the annuals. He also drew covers and heading blocks for The Skipper, and their annuals too.

Would be good.

My dad was at school with Dudley Watkins's son.
Is it weird to have no interest in keeping or collecting free gifts?
