Searching for Hutchings in 1969.
I came across an illustration from this lovely 1969 Annual on Flickr posted by Buglady 1104
and the illustrator was just listed as ‘Hutchings’.
I started to look into who this might be and came across the name of Gordon Hutchings
on Steve Holland’s site. Whether this is the same Hutchings or not he was a great artist
himself and also had a talented family of artists too. It’s possible, as he’s worked on some
Classics like Mickey Mouse Weekly, Sooty and The Magic Roundabout. I thought it was
funny to see how easily the internet can sidetrack you from one illustrator to another and
take you on a quick visual journey, you wouldn’t have made without typing those certain
words into google ! Lovely illustration Hutchings, whoever you might be lol.
