Cartoonist Oslo Davis sacked by The Age

Melbourne's visual bard, Oslo Davis, has been relieved of his scribbling duties on the back page of The Age alongside Andrew Weldon and -- apparently -- Judy Horacek.

The Age appears to have sacked three of its most respected cartoonists as part of a back page redesign — but seems to have failed to tell one of them her services were no longer required.

Melbourne visual bard Oslo Davis, Andrew Weldon and Judy Horacek all shared a space on the back page — but only Davis and Weldon were told they’d been relieved of their scribbling duties. The news, broken by Davis on his Facebook fan page, has been greeted with dismay by readers who often began their mornings with his wry musings.

    Andrew, How come FD uses that kinda language but deletes comments with the same content?

    Why is Oslo Davis’ sacking headlined, while the sacking of Weldon barely rates a mention?
