Leslie Grimes (1898-1983) became a commercial artist after serving in the Royal Flying Corps during the first World War. He designed tube posters for the Ministry of Labour and London County Council and contributed numerous sketches to The Motor Cycle. In 1927 he joined The Star as a political cartoonist, taking over from David Low, and he created the hugely successful 'All my own Work' cartoon series for the paper in 1938. Grimes used to draw with Conte chalk, sitting on the floor, using the side of the chalk for shading
