Tony Grogan has become something of a national institution: he has been drawing cartoons for the Cape Times since 1974 and, more recently, for the Sunday Independent.
Tony's work comments on our national life with his characteristically gentle and witty humour that often gets right home.
Tony was born and grew up in the Eastern Cape and was educated at Selborne College and at Rhodes University.
He is the author of 5 books of his paintings and drawings which have become valued Africana. He has held numerous one-man exhibitions of his paintings and has published a number of collections of his cartoons. The above caricature of Tony was drawn a few years back by Ralph Steadman when Tony had more hair on his head! If you are unable to read the caption, it states that it was “drawn in Malawian Ink and Welsh Spit”
