About the Artist – Gary Clark
‘Born in Brisbane in 1954 I spent my childhood playing in the creeks and ponds near home in the suburb of the Grange. Near this creek was a tannery with a sludge pond that the fat scrappings from the tanning process washed into. It really stank when the wind blew – you knew you lived near a tannery.’ ‘I was inspired to draw as a child by watching my dad draw. He would sit me on his lap and sketch. After high school, my mum suggested I go to Art School for 3 years. I graduated with a certificate in commercial illustration – I was never taught cartooning but I developed my skills while at Art School as I had been doing during my early primary and high school days drawing cartoons in my school pads to amuse friends.’ ‘My first cartoon was published in 1971. It featured in a very small advertisement for security screens. That same year I had a small booklet of cartoons published by the gliding club I belonged to called “Soaring Satire”.’ ‘This interest in cartoons continued while I worked as a layout artist in the advertising department of Myers. In 1974, during a lunch break, I developed the beginnings of a cartoon strip based on my childhood memories of marshy places and wildlife. Several years went by before it was developed enough to sell.’ ‘In 1981, my wife sold “The Swamp” strip to its first newspaper. Today, Swamp appears in newspapers throughout Australia, New Zealand and Europe and is translated into seven languages.’ ‘It is my wife, Yvonne, and son, Scott, who provide much of the support and inspiration which make Swamp what it is.’ ‘In 1985, I was the winner of the Australian Black and White Artist Club Inaugural Award for Best Comic Strip Artist, and since then have been nominated 14 times, winning the award 7 times. I have had 19 Swamp cartoon collections published here and overseas.’ ‘In 1999, Swamp was proud to be a finalist at the Queensland Export Awards in the category of Arts/Entertainment. We are also pleased to have won the 1999 ABWAC Stanley Award for Best Comic Strip Artist.’
