After completing his School Certificate and having his cartoons published in the National Review, he worked as a cadet artist with the Sydney Fairfax group and was a graded artist within three years, becoming editorial cartoonist of the Sydney Sun at age 18. He claimed his major influences varied from Mad magazine cartoonists to contemporary editorial cartoonists (eg. Paul Rigby) and even Walt Disney and Warner brothers. Pracy died suddenly at work on September 19, 1984, aged 22. He had returned to Sydney after some weeks in the US on a travelling art scholarship. His last Sun cartoon was drawn on September 19, 1984.
