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