Subject: Info request - FR cartoonist Natasha

From 1973 to 1976, I used to write the monthly 'Tailpiece' column for Fred Woods's "Folk Review" magazine. My column's picture byline was an unflattering but, it must be admitted, not inaccurate full-length drawing, which cleverly captured, in somewhat exaggerated caricature, my features and stance. I have the original, signed simply "Natasha"; whom I met, introduced by Fred at a 1970s Cambridge Folk Festival, for only the couple of minutes it took for her to walk round and study me. We never met again; she did the drawing entirely from memory. I have some recollection of Fred having said that she was a cartoonist for The Scotsman newspaper. I have failed to find any info about her online; but wonder if any Catter, who might happen to be a Scotsman-reader or a student of the cartoon genre, could tell me her full name, or might know anything else about her.

In interests of accuracy: having looked again, I find that the signature is not "simply Natasha" as I said above, but, in full,

©Natasha 1973.

The name rings a bell; at some point I must have seen her cartoons regularly. Style rather like that used for caricaturing celebs by Punch, the Guardian and the Telegraph.

Thank you, Jack. Yes, the sort of caricature used for politicians & celebs. Mainly dependent on facial features -- head exaggeratedly large in proportion to the body; tho, as I said above, my characteristic, somewhat slouching, stance is faithfully captured also: pic is in profile from left.

My Folk Review column, BTW in case may jog any memories, was entitled "Taking the Mike".

Any further bells rung?
