PETE DREDGE EXHIBITION

The Professional Cartoonists' Organisation website today tweeted out news about an exhibition currently on show in the town of Kirriemuir in the east of Scotland which might be of particular interest to pig pals:

Pete Dredge drew some fantastic strips for Oink! during its run, including the early Master T spoofs of The A-Team's bejewelled milk-drinker.  His fresh style always felt so animated on the page, full of character and energy, his drawings as unique as the comic they were published in.  Still working to this day and known for his work in publications such as Private Eye, his one-panel gag cartoons are enjoyed by a huge audience and you can clearly see why on his profile page of the PCO's website.

Well, if your sty is located in Scotland you may wish to pop along to Kirriemuir's Bank Street Gallery where a selection of his work is now on display.  Apologies this is only being mentioned now here on the blog but this is the first I've heard of it, so with the exhibition ending this Friday (16th June) you'll want to get a move on!
