SMITHY ON SHOW

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - LIFESTYLE -

AF­TER 25 years in the busi­ness, car­toon­ist Greg Smith says he has been blessed with a “won­der­ful as­sort­ment of political cra­ni­ums” to draw, but his favourite by far is Premier Colin Bar­nett.

“His nick­name ‘The Em­peror’ has al­lowed me to draw him in all his re­gal at­tire, and his Luna Park smile from car­toon­ing heaven,” he said.

Known best for his satir­i­cal car­i­ca­tures, Smithy has worked as an edi­to­rial car­toon­ist for more than 25 years for the Daily News, Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group and the Sun­day Times. He will show­case some of his 4000 edi­to­rial car­toons in a Mar­garet River ex­hi­bi­tion over the Easter long week­end.
