Pingu Illustrator Tony Wolf Dies, Age 88

Post by comixminx » 25 May 2018, 12:15

The illustrator Antonio Lupatelli, who under the pseudonym Tony Wolf drew the much-loved penguin Pingu in a series of books, has died at age 88. The Newsweek article linked to below says that 'His long, prolific career saw him illustrating children's books and comics for European publishers, among them Fleetway in Britain', apparently in the titles Playhour and Jack and Jill. Anyone know any more?
