More on Dudley D. Watkins

You may remember a while back I exhorted all my readers to nominate Dudley D. Watkins for an Eagle Award.  Nominations have been closed for ages at the awards website, and there’s no sign of voting starting, so I don’t know how effective my little campaign was. But here’s a link to a great piece on Rod McKie’s blog about him, as well as a site devoted to The Broons and Oor Wullie, two of his best-known creations. The man was truly one of the greats, and if the UK had the same respect for cartooning as an art form he’d be as celebrated as Hergé is on the continent.
