Evans, Malcolm Paul, 1945- :[Cartoons controversy]. 2 June 2013
Press (Christchurch, N.Z.)

The cartoon shows a cartoonists office with an [obscured] cartoonist at work behind a large easel. A colleague appears at the office door with a newspaper in hand. The front-page headline relates to the Queen's Birthday honours list. The colleague says "I see you missed out on a gong again!". There is a poster on the office wall which reads "Cartoons cause controversy". Refers to the controversy caused by Al Nisbet's cartoon published in the Marlborough Express on 29 May 2013 and in The Press on 30 May 2013 which was criticised by Susan Devoy, the Race Relations Commissioner. It may also refer to Malcolm Evans' past experiences of causing controversy with his cartoons.
