Trevor LLOYD, Artist, illustrator, cartoonist,  (1863-1937):

Lloyd was a pioneer of etching in New Zealand and one of the country's leading political cartoonists for 32 years.

He was born in New Zealand and in the early 1900s he moved to Auckland where he began earning a living from his art. His first commission was to illustrate stories and articles in the New Zealand Illustrated Magazine.He also produced a series of illustrations for the New Zealand Graphic. Early in 1903 he joined the Auckland Weekly News as an illustrator, graphic artist and cartoonist. From 1904 his cartoons also appeared in the New Zealand Herald.

During the 1905 All Black tour to Britain, he drew one of the first New Zealand cartoons using the kiwi as a symbol for New Zealand. Lloyd also caught the public imagination by dubbing the New Zealand Railways the ‘New Zealand Snailways’. However, in 1921 he began to contribute pen-and-ink drawings to the Saturday supplement of the New Zealand Herald. Lloyd's daughters both attended the Elam School of Art, and after seeing samples of their print-making, he took up etching and drypoint.

Over the years he produced sepia etchings of Maori subjects, the New Zealand bush and Auckland's environs. It is perhaps for his etchings that he is best known.

Lloyd was particularly interested in Maori culture and language. He became well known for his decorative borders in the Christmas number of the Auckland Weekly News, which appeared around photographic montages and featured New Zealand flora, fauna and Maori motifs. Lloyd also used Maori motifs and people in his cartoons. The family bach, in the Waitakere Range west of Auckland, was built in the shape of a Maori meeting house with Lloyd supplying the carvings. He chose the name Whare Tane for the family home and accumulated a considerable collection of Maori artefacts. He found many pieces while fossicking with his dog along and around the beaches, pa sites and caves of Auckland's rugged west coast. A significan part of the collection is now held by the Auckland Institute and Museum.

There are more than thirty postcards produced by various publishers. They date from around the early 20th century.
