modern type

My friend Matt Jones emailed, telling me about his plans to hold the first retrospective of Ronald Searle's work on the west coast of America - at the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco.

The only snag was how to get Searle's work to California. So Matt hit on the idea of asking his friends and contacts in the industry to donate a Searle-inspired piece, which he could auction to cover shipping costs. Loads of people said yes, and you can see the results over at Matt's blog.

And here's mine - a British rocker, inspired by Searle's late fifties work (in books like the wonderful 'Modern Types').
