Max Atkinson

Cartooning revisited?

Max Atkinson

Looking back on my early attempts at cartooning, I can see that they were all too poorly drawn to be reprinted here. When I was an undergraduate at Reading University, I had a little success drawing cartoons for Rattler , the annual Rag magazine.

So I thought the answer would be to try to become an academic, as they had a decent salary and rather longer ''holidays'' than most people.
