Acanthus – a cartoonist I sadly can’t include in the Irish Comics Wiki

Frank Hoar (1907-1976), the distinguished architect architect and architectural historian, who designed the first terminal of Gatwick Airport among other things, also drew cartoons for Punch under the name “Acanthus”.  I really wanted to include him in the Irish Comics Wiki, but marrying the daughter of a TD is a bit of a tenuous claim to Irishness. But, gorgeous drawing. I mean, just look at that perspective!

    I’m sure Gerry would have coped with not being the only architect-turned cartoonist in the country!
