Who was Paul Rigby?

Paul Crispin Rigby AM, usually working under the name Rigby, was an award-winning Australian cartoonist who worked for newspapers in Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Born Sandringham, Melbourne, Rigby studied art at Brighton Technical School before leaving at 15 to work as a commercial artist, eventually taking up freelance work. Rigby served in the Royal Australian Air Force during World War II from 1942 to 1946, seeing action in North Africa and Europe.

Rigby worked in pen and ink on Bristol board. In much the same way that Al Hirschfeld concealed the name "NINA" in his own drawings, Rigby usually included hard-to-find images of a tiny dog and a small boy somewhere in his cartoons.
