Straight from school, Ian kennedy was immediately employed as a junior member of staff in the Art Department of publishers D.C.Thomson, Dundee - the best possible apprenticeship. First published artwork, filling in the blacks in the Sunday Post crossword!
Ian went freelance in1954, and since then, a check of pretty well any of the major UK boys’ and girls’ publications will almost certainly unearth examples of his work (see Wikipedia).
His career spans what he terms the comic industry’s “Golden Times” being in constant demand from all directions. Even now, despite his “getting on a bit”, his drawing board is still in regular use, coping with the requirements of both publishers and private clients and, on the whole, enjoying every minute!
