Lemmy Loo by Lloyd Piper
Lemmy Loo (Captain Triumph Comics #19, February 1950)

Lloyd Piper was an Australian cartoonist and art teacher, and the third artist of the classic newspaper comic 'Ginger Meggs'. Born in Cassilis, New South Wales, he served in the Australian Army in New Guinea during World War II. He settled in Sydney, where he drew for Australian comic book companies. Piper drew features like 'Catman' and 'Kalar the Caveman' for Super Yank Comics for Frew Publications in the 1950s. He also made 'Steel Barr' for OPC's Hurricane and the filler comic 'Lemmy Loo' for KG Murray's Captain Triumph Comics.

He worked as an advertising layout artist for most of the 1950s and 1960s, and was a teacher in Graphic Design with the National Art School from 1970. Piper returned to comics in 1972, when he was hired to draw the adventure comic 'Wolf' for the Sunday Telegraph. He took over the 'Ginger Meggs' from Ron Vivian in 1973, and continued it until his death in 1983. 'Ginger Meggs', that was originally created by Jimmy Bancks, was continued by James Kemsley.
