I had a cartoon appear in the Australian version of The Spectator recently. I thought it might be interesting to compare it with an older gag from the British Spectator- the settings are similar (family members in kitchen), but I think the styles are quite different.

I used to try and get a lot of details in a scene, as I thought that was the correct thing to do.
Here they are-

older toon
(you’d never guess I used a photo as reference, would you)

newer toon. I quite like the newer style- just a few strokes of the pen to suggest the background- signature looks a bit better too i reckon.
