His work is in constant demand; indeed, Tom was chosen to draw a cartoon celebrating Dublin's recent tenure as the European City of Culture. I can't reprint it here, so I'll describe it:
"Hey, Barkeep!" calls one of the tourists. "How about some of that famous Dublin wit?"
"Certainly, sir," replies the barman. "Dry or sparkling?"
Tom's collections, The Toast of Europe and A Bit Off the Wall are essential reading for anyone with a taste in wicked puns and surreal word-play.
[Note: More information on Tom Mathews - and with luck a few of his cartoons - will appear as soon as possible.]
