Chris let cartoon do all the talking

CHRIS Barr readily admits he was lost for words when his name was read out at the recent Coffs Harbour Rotary Cartoon Awards.

The 43-year-old took out the caricature section for his depiction of U2 front man, Bono.

“I was totally shocked. I was pretty much dumbfounded. I was up against stiff competition,” Chris said. “When I had to get up and make a speech, I was like a stunned mullet.”

Chris said he chose Bono as the subject of his caricature entry because the singer was 'a guy I admire'.

“He had a great face for a caricature, and that was why it was such a bold caricature, because he has such a bold personality,” he said.
