Telegraph Cartoon Legend of Matt

For context, massive inflation is hitting the UK right now, especially in food and groceries. I myself was shocked to find that a Brick Lane Beigel Bake bagel had just gone from 22p each to 40p. Mainly attributed to a lack of wheat and grain from Ukraine. As the British government tries to crack down on the personal assets of Russian oligarchs living in London and seen as a financial base of support for Russia. Including the freezing of the assets of Roman Abramovich who were trying to sell Premier League football club Chelsea FC before sanctions landed. And he was a week ahead of the news. This is the front page of today’s Daily Star newspaper.

Separated at birth: Matt's Telegraph Cartoon and The Daily Star

Well, it looks like a lot of people are reading Matt in the Telegraph…even the Daily Star sub-editors.

Separated at Birth used to be called Swipe File, where we featured two or more images that look alike to some extent. They can be homages, parodies, ironic appropriations, coincidences or works from the lightbox. We trusted you, reader, to make that judgment yourself. If you are unable to do so, we ask that you please return your eyes to their manufacturer before further damage is done. The Swipe File itself did not judge; he was more interested in the creative process, how work influences other work, how new work comes from old and sometimes how the same ideas emerge simultaneously as if their time had come to become. Let those without a blow cast the first stone. The Swipe file was named after the advertising industry habit where writers and artists collect images and lines they admire to inspire them in their work. It was taken from Comic Journal, which originally ran this column, and the now-defunct Swipe Of The Week website.
