Derek Bauer was born in East London, South Africa in 1955. He became a political cartoonist for The Weekly Mail in 1985. Known for his angry pen and ink work and biting insight, Bauer has been compared to Ralph Steadman and Gerald Scarfe, and in turn his distinctive style influenced several artists. He died in a car accident in December 2001.
