The Professional Cartoonists Organisation has posted the sad news that Alex Noel Watson has passed away. You will read that he was a delightful person, a real character –and that was exactly the case; he was a high-spirited exceptionally friendly man of many talents.
Mr. Watson’s work appears in The New Yorker Cartoon Album 1975-1985. He contributed seven drawings to The New Yorker between 1970 and 1997 (his first appears below — it was in the issue of August 29, 1970). Also shown is the cartoonist company he kept in that issue.
