Biography:

David Henry Souter (1862-1935) 
Souter was a cartoonist, painter and art editor. Born in Aberdeen, Scotland, he trained as a painter and decorator and then as an artist. After working as a newspaper illustrator in Scotland and South Africa he arrived in Melbourne in 1885, moving permanently to Sydney in 1897. Soon after, he founded the Brush Club, and was associated in the ensuing years with the first Council of the Society of Artists. His first cartoon for the Bulletin appeared in February 1895; the sinuous black and white cat that was to become his hallmark first appeared in a cartoon in July of that year. Over the next forty years he produced cartoons in style that might loosely be described as art nouveau, typically depicting prosperous urban couples bantering about sex and money, with the cat a slinking spy on the scene.
