Moira started cartooning later in life than some but made up for any lost time with her popular cartoon strips; exquisite children’s book illustrations; and offering her services as a visiting author for primary schools.
In this episode we talk about her mixed French and Scottish background; the romantic view of the author/illustrator relationship versus the reality; what a “female” cartoon looks like; Moira’s experiences creating her own titles for children (including the successful Hamish the Bear books); the necessity of diversity in a cartooning career; and her recent work in the health sector.
