The First Publication of Mick and Hoppa



My Uncle Des had his sign writing and art business located in Footscray at that time and he knew the editor of the Footscray Times. I was introduced to him and got my cartoon published. Naively, my second cartoon strip included puns on the local businesses. One called Forges I named Forgery on the shop sign. It probably did not go over well so that first cartoon was the last in that newspaper.
