IPOH: Cartoonist Datuk Mohd Nor Khalid more famously known as Lat has a wish that more local cartoonists be given the opportunity to showcase their work in the print and electronic media.

He said their work could be syndicated along the lines of their 50s era western counterparts whose caricatures are published all over Europe, the Americas and Asia.

He named popular cartoonists Jaafar Taib, Zainal Buang Hussin and Ibrahim Anom (Ujang) as among those who should be given the honour.

Lat, who hails from Gopeng near here, told this to reporters after attending the launch of first day covers bearing his cartoons at the Main Post Office here on Thursday. Also present was Pos Malaysia Perak general manager Mohd Azizi Mohd Sanusi.

Pos Malaysia on Monday launched a stamp collection featuring his cartoons. - Bernama
