Ginger Meggs guest star

At the National Cartoonists Society’s Reubens Weekend I got to met and hang with Jason Chatfield,  the new cartoonist on the classic Australian comic strip Ginger Meggs. Jason was nice enough to include a certain monkey with a lot of more famous guest stars in the strip a few Sundays ago. You can see it here.

The previous artist, the late James Kemsley, was a sweetheart of a man. I met him on one of his many trips to the US and we became friends. He was instrumental in get Bo Nanas into some Aussie papers. James was a wonderful ambassador for comics and his son accepted the Silver T-square Award in his father’s honor this May at the Rubes.

I’m looking a a small packet of Vegemite that James gave me years ago. It’s in the small “toy box” on my desk.
