Alfonso Wong, the creator of Asia's iconic "Old Master Q" comic strip died at the age of 93.
Wong's comics were well-known for their witty and lampooning portrayals on a broad range of topics -- from current affairs to the minutiae of daily life in Hong Kong.
The cartoonist was born in the Chinese city of Tianjin but moved to Hong Kong in 1956.
Wong started the series in the 1960s under the name of Wong Chak, his eldest son.
"He actually drew himself into the comics," his son Joseph Wong said, "the way Old Master behaved, the way that he (thinks), the way that he acts to other people, like his neighbors. That's pretty much my father."
He got his start drawing for a French Catholic missionary before creating "Old Master Q," which first appeared in newspapers in 1962.
The Centre is now hosting a tribute to Wong's works.
Wong retired in the 1990s, and Joseph Wong took over the family business and began drawing the series.
