Stanley McMurtry MBE, known by his pen name Mac, is a British cartoonist. McMurtry is best known for his controversial work for the British Daily Mail newspaper, from 1971 to 2018
McMurtry viewed his role at the Daily Mail as making a “dreary news copy of the daily paper brighter, by putting in a laugh”.
His practice was to produce three or more drafts each day, on differing topics, from which his editor would choose one to be drawn to finished standard. In most of his daily cartoons, Mac included a small portrait of his wife hidden within the picture.
