The Bloghorn Artist of the Month for May 2009 is Ken Pyne, a prolific gag, strip cartoonist and caricaturist.
Bloghorn asked Ken how he started as a cartoonist:
I became a cartoonist as I never wanted to do anything else as far back as I can remember. Drawing all over school exercise books seemed better than written homework, which helped me get my first cartoon published in Punch when I was 16. After that, I never looked forward.
Since then he has contributed to: Private Eye, The Times, Punch, Spectator, Observer, Guardian, Evening Standard, TES, Daily Mirror, Mail on Sunday, The Independent, Daily Telegraph, People, Manchester Evening News, Ham & High, Sunday Times, The Oldie, Reader’s Digest, Which?, Stern, Today, Sunday Express, Marketing Week, New Statesman, Listener, Radio Times, Esquire, House Beautiful, Federation of Small Businesses, Money Marketing, FM World and more.
There will be more from the interview with Ken next Friday.
