David Hawker RIP

September 3, 2015 in General

The PCO is sad to report that David Hawker, a Punch regular, passed away at St. Michael’s Hospice, Basingstoke on 31st August.

David first contributed to Punch in 1967 and his easy drawing style betrayed an acerbic wit, as the accompanying cartoon demonstrates.

More of David’s wonderful work can be found in the Punch galleries here.

David is survived by his sister.

  1. Thanks for this Jonesy. The hospice has been in touch, thanking us for our interest. I think David was a very private man, but he was also an excellent, quintessentially “English” cartoonists’ cartoonist. His work certainly stands up today.
