What I do

Welcome to my  site.

I’m a cartoonist and have been for many years. I have worked for a wide range of clients but in more recent times I have embarked on what might be called “all my own work”.This is a bit of a misnomer, as you will see from the following paragraph, but my meaning is that there is no art director or designer involvement. That aside, if you are looking for someone to help out with a project then get in touch, I do like working with others.

My most recent work is a celebration of the work of a cartoonist called Pont who’s real name was Graham Laidler and was very popular in the 1930s. Pont, as he called himeself, specialised in drawings about “The British Character”. I have revisited the subject with a series of drawings, some are now available as prints from this site.To take a look at them just click here: The British

I have also been doing a series of drawings on what I call ” Apt Names”. These too are now appearing on this site and some of them are also available as prints.

My most recent project is Hairpiece. It’s a series of drawings on men’s haircuts, or in some cases, the lack thereof. I’m hoping to have prints available of these quite soon and there are a range of products with the drawings on them right here: Red Bubble

I hope you enjoy my site, and if you want to see more then click over here to my Blog  I’ll be fulminating or celebrating depending on the prevailing mood of the day, and possibly the weather.

If it’s raining I’ll be drawing. Showers and damp: probably faffing with one of my website projects like today. Dry and sunny, then I may be in the garden looking for the perfect way to grow carrots.
