SBH:Russell Taylor and Charles Peattie, who comprise the cartoonist "Alex", interviewed by Frank Whitford for a programme in the second series of The Cartoonists.
PRE:Taylor & Peattie: both do the storylines, Peattie draws.
Had no financial or city knowledge before they started the cartoon strip, they know a bit more now.
Love-hate relationship with their character "Alex".
The strip syndicates abroad so they do not base it on current events in UK financial world.
They have only two cartoons prepared in advance.
5'28" in - how they work; how they got into cartoon business.
"Celeb" cartoon in Private Eye - another insensitive character.
Most cartoon characters are witty losers, these are insensitive winners.
Cartoons have to be incredibly concise.
Example of their work.
