Ronald Searle, cartoonist: RIP

Ronald Searle the cartoonist who drew St Trinians and the Wonderful Molesworth charachters has died.

There is a full obit on the BBC website.

His spindly drawings were perfect in capturing the grotesqueness of the charachters and capture a long lost England of stuffy coves and wild fillies…

The St Custards books he illustrated featuring the cynical Molesworth were popular at school and i still have my battered copies. His cartoons were brilliant, they really looked alive and they had an acute understanding of the gross, spineless, pimply charachters from the books.
