Arthur Ferrier's produced a number of strip cartoons including “Spotlight on Sally” for the News of the World and “Eve” for the Daily Sketch. After many years of drawing pin-ups, advertising and a great many cartoons, Ferrier died in 1973.
This post was a clipping I found in the early 1970’s and was taken from a News of the World copy, circa 1945. It was part of a collection of items, ‘Spick and Span’ amongt them.
Ferrier stopped working for the News of the World in 1959, but continued to do commercial and advertising work. ‘He was a tireless and enthusiastic party-goer and party-giver, noted a friend: He entertained in a large room decorated with his portraits of beautiful women. There would be good food and good wine - and a massive tally of theatrical talent to entertain the happy company’.
