The Professional Cartoonists’ Organisation are shocked and saddened to hear of the death of the London Cartoon Museum’s Alison Brown.

Aged just 39, Alison was the museum’s retail and front of house manager as well as assisting with exhibitions and being the face of many public events. She was a passionate advocate for cartoons and comic art and an instantly likeable person, popular with everyone who met her.
Having been admitted to hospital in December with a pelvic infection she had undergone surgery and transferred to a rehab ward where she remained in good spirits. Tragically, she then contracted Covid 19 which, due to her weakened state, she was unable to fight off.

Our deepest sympathies go out to Alison’s family and friends.

Here’s another tribute to Alison by The Cartoon Museum Director Joe Sullivan: The Museums Association

There is a fundraiser commemorating the life of Alison by raising money for both Cancer Research UK and The Cartoon Museum. More details here: here

  1. Such very sad news. I met Alison only briefly on occasion, but recognise that she did enormous amounts for cartooning in many ways. I hope some tribute can go forward from the PCO and wonder if it might be nice to put the names of all PCO members on that, should that be some kind of letter.

  2. Never met Alison but this is close to the cartoonist home. Very sad news to hear of someone so young passing in this way.

  3. So very sad to hear this. Alison was a lovely friendly person who I talked to every week when I arrived to volunteer for the Cartoon Museum. She will be greatly missed and I send my sympathy to her family and to the Museum for her loss.
