Summary

A warm visual and anecdotal memoir of the artist Martin Sharp by Peter Kingston, who knew him best. Martin was a year ahead of Peter at Cranbrook School in Sydney, and they both went on to attend the Universities of Sydney and New South Wales, The Yellow House and the Ginger Meggs Skool of the Arts in Potts Point, and worked together at Luna Park Sydney. They contributed cartoons to Tharunka, Oz, Noise, the National Review and The Arty Wild Oat. They remained good friends for over sixty years until Martin's death in 2013. The memoir contains sixteen short one page chapters illustrated with Martin's brilliant cartoons, plus an original limited edition lino print by Peter after Martin's drawing 'Moloch.'
