Dermot Walshe is a cartoonist of some clear talent, and an enthusiast of early motorcycles and history - clearly a man of excellent inclinations! His blogsite Zoomfrog was the recent host of his hand drawn exploration of Stanley Woods' first Isle of Man experience, racing a Cotton - the start of a long and illustrious career. Dermot's drawing style is as old-school as his content, in the manner of classics like Tin Tin; I love the sepia coloration, just like the photographs and films of the era.
Dermot is hoping for funding to make a full-length animated film out of his story... and let's hope he is successful!
