Published Work by Robert T Nixon

Parkie the Park Keeper, a weekly newspaper strip created by Robert, first appeared in The Middlesbrough Evening Gazette in 1981.


In an interview to the Middlesbrough Evening Gazette prior to the strips launch, Robert explained:
"He's a park keeper.  Really he's a vehicle for a humourous look at life.  He could come into contact with virtually anybody - anybody can stroll through a park.  He's going to be a philosophical type.  That's why he's the age he is.  He's seen a bit of life..."
