Woman's Weekly

At one time he illustrated the Letters page, the Good Health is ... feature (three examples below) and supplied The Wrights, a weekly comic strip. Due to the constantly changing editorship of the magazine, he was gradually relieved of all these jobs.

Vanity Fair

This, and several other drawings, are shown in the splendid The Secrets of Fashion Drawing by Noel Chapman and Judith Cheek, where each illustrator has a double page spread of work.  If you like fashion and fashion drawing, this contains an abundance of advice and samples of all kinds of fashion illustration.


Malcolm regularly illustrated Petticoat beginning with the first issue, after being discovered whilst studying fashion at the Manchester Regional College of Art, when the monthly Honey magazine (of which Petticoat was the weekly sister) edited an edition from the North of England.
