    Mort Drucker was a fan of Ron Searle, and it’s pretty obvious in Drucker’s work. I just finished reading “The Naked Island” by Australian writer Russell Braddon who during WW2 was a prisoner of war of the Japanese with Ron Searle on the Burma – Thai Railway and in Changi. He mentions how Searle was always drawing and working on minimising his line. He also told of the time Searle drew a cat 50 times while a group of fellow prisoners watched eagerly for him to finish so they could eat the cat. Black humour haha
