Good cartoonists can really capture a moment, a scene, a situation or a picture so well. The gift they have is so wonderful and rare, yet so often their work is dismissed or simply glossed over. It’s a gift I would love to have as I regularly see things I would like to capture as a cartoon!
So let’s start this week in a chilled fashion with a bunch of cartoons from the 1976 Cape to Rio Race that I have in my archives from the Frans Loots collection of press cuttings.
My favourite is the bar full of line-honours winners at the counter celebrating. There’s a lot to be said for being the first boat home!
