Vale Murray Ball
(1938 - 2017)

It is with great sadness that the ACA received the news of the death of Murray Ball. It is always heartbreaking when a cartoonist of such standing and with such a contribution to popular culture passes away.

However, we are left with his enormous legacy to cartooning - from his children’s books, his books for adults through to his so well-beloved series for everyone, Footrot Flats.

Murray was a great influence to many Australian cartoonists and will be long remembered by his friends across the sea here in Australia.

On behalf of the ACA I extend our deepest sympathies to his wife Pam and their children.
