1971This is the unique original Gouache painting by Harold Tamblyn-Watts.
Harold William Tamblyn-Watts was born in Settle, Yorkshire on 5 May 1900 and passed away in 1999. During a long and fruitful career he drew both the Gerry Anderson's creation 'Supercar' and 'On The Danger Trail with Grahame Dangerfield' for TV Comic.
'Katie Country Mouse' was one feature he painted for Jack and Jill the pre-school comic. He was also known for his spot illustrations for various Eagle and Girl annuals. Outside the comics field he had a reputation as a skilled wildlife artist.
This example was published in Jack and Jill 26th July 1971 and reprinted 8th July 1978.
The art has been remounted on backing board. All the art is perfect but some boards have mottling outside the image area.
This is a particularly fine example of the artist's work.
