Greg Moodie's headshot

Greg Moodie is the cartoonist at The National, Scotland’s newest daily newspaper, and the author of several peculiar books. Cool Scots is a psychedelic reimagining of Scotland’s rich and varied past; Borrowing Burns is a semi-fictional or ‘factually dubious’ account of the making of his series of Tam O’ Shanter murals in Torphichen, West Lothian. He has also published three collections of cartoons, Greg Moodie Versus The Union, Election Dissection and Striptease.

He has written two novels, The Unbearable Stupidity Of Being and Six Degrees Of Stupidity, which he would dearly like to see in print before he dies, as he’s unlikely to try anything so foolhardy again.

Technically Dundonian, he graduated in Fine Art from the city’s Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art sometime before the invention of fire, but believes that, like Vegas, what happened there stayed there.
