Patricia Tourret (b. London, 1929) was educated at Harrow Art School before becoming a freelance illustrator. She created the daily strip, Tiffany Jones, about the adventures of a model, with writer Jenny Butterworth in the Daily Sketch and Daily Mail from 1964 to 1977, which was also syndicated worldwide and spawned a 1973 film starring Anouska Hempel. She also drew for British girls' comics, including Boyfriend, in the early 1960s, and has illustrated children's books and educational books.
Due to the all women team the style in Tiffany Jones not surprisingly presented a new girlish design that was copied by many other artists in the years thereafter producing art for comics magazines aimed for girls. I had difficulty locating sample art, but then I came across a big envelope I received from Bulls Presstjänst in Stockholm after having signed a distribution agreement on my own adventure strip, Zenit. It contained paper proofs from several epic comics, mostly from King Features Syndicate, but the British Tiffany Jones was there as well. I was happy to be able to include this strip here, since it presented an innovation in the design of newspaper strips emerging in the Sixties.
