WA mourns death of cartoonist Rigby at 82 Renowned Australian cartoonist Paul Rigby, who worked for newspapers in Perth, Sydney, London and New York, died following a heart attack at his home in Margaret River, WA. Born in Melbourne, Rigby, who was 82, joined West Australian Newspapers as an il- lustrator in 1948 after four years service in the Royal Australian Air Force. He gained national recogni- tion when his political car- toons, which he began drawing for Perth's afternoon paper, The Daily News in 1952, were also run in Sydney's Daily Mirror between 1960 and 1969, win- ning him five Walkley Awards. Rigby's trademark, which he worked cleverly into his frames, was a boy and his dog. In London, he worked for The Sun and his drawings also appeared in the News of the World; in New York, he was a hit with readers of both the New York Post and the New York Daily News. Rigby, who is estimated to have drawn 15,000 sketches over 50 years in the business, retired in 2000, a year after Prime Minister John Howard presented him with the Order of Australia. He initially moved to the United States and settled in Florida, but returned to Australia in 2003 to live in Margaret River. News Limited chairman and chief executive John Hartigan described Rigby as a master. "Australia has punched above its weight with its rich and colourful history of cartooning, and Paul Rigby was undoubt- edly the master," said Hartigan. "He led the way and carried his mastery from Perth to New York with pitstops all across the world. A true legend."
