Paul Rigby (1924-2006)

Paul Rigby, Australian political cartoonist who moved to London to work on The Sun in 1969, returning to Australia in 1975 and then moving to the New York Post in 1977, died on 15 November. Many readers will remember Rigby's habit of hiding a small boy and his dog in all of his cartoons.

Obituaries have appeared in a number of Australian, British and American newspapers, including The West Australian (with a follow-up including comments from Rigby's son and a full obituary) and The Australian (plus follow-up full obituary). The London Times obituary appeared today.
