One for railway fans…

Railway cartoon by BobsiaOne of those fun profits from a search of the net while tracking down some eastern European cartoonists: right is a cartoon on the South Eastern Railways Group site by Bobisa Todorovic.

It’s one of the winning cartoons of a competition celebrating railways in a 2004 international biennial exhibition, which was organised by the Belgrade City Department for Culture, the country’s Railway Transport Enterprise “Beograd”, the Belgrade Railway Museum, Federation of Cartoonists’ Organisations (Serbia and Montenegro).

There seem to be a lot of these international competitions, certainly more than there appaear to be in the UK and US, which once again indicates just how highly regarded cartoons and comics are elsewhere in the world. Sigh…
