Toby Morris’s comics (The Side Eye, The Pencilsword) have been making an impact in New Zealand for some time, but his collaborations with Dr Siouxsie Wiles communicating public health messages around the Covid-19 pandemic went truly global. Released under Creative Commons, these illustrations have been used by governments worldwide and ultimately the World Health Organisation. At the same time as all this, along with becoming The Spinoff’s creative director and starting Daylight Creative, he also managed to write a book: Dad Man Walking. In this episode he tells Duncan Greive about the book, the Covid-19 illustrations and how he has developed his distinctive style of comics journalism over the years.
