I'm a Giles fan. I have a complete collection of his cartoons. He just captures life so well, and there's always something going on in the cartoon. Here's a typical one of the family. Do you have a favourite, Giles or otherwise?

Dad used to get the Annual every Christmas, gave a good couple of hours pleasure Boxing Day. One really stuck in my mind, through a kitchen window, the Giles Dad, in the garden just finishing painting a name on an upturned boat. He'd clearly not realised his painting was upside down. All around the usual Giles mayhem, and Mum washing up saying to a daughter 'he's been all weekend at that, best not tell him yet.

Yes, I remember that one. Typical Giles humour.


Boats were a big theme of his. The RNLI had several Giles cartoons for their Christmas cards. My favourite boat cartoon has a chap sanding down his boat with one of those rotary attachments for an electric drill, and he's just drilled a whole right through the hull with it. I think of that every time I see sailing boats in dry dock.

Giles was a remarkable cartoonist and his drawings are full of details that are only noticed on the 4th or even later viewings. I have a number of Roy Ulyatt originals. While more simply drawn they too contain subtle detail

Giles was an excellent observational cartoonist. The little details made his work fun.

For political matters, I have always liked Gerald Scarfe, for his boldness. He pushed boundaries.
