PCO Artist of the Month – Dave Gaskill

March 7, 2008 in General


PCO Artist of the Month for March 2008 is Dave Gaskill and this is one of his cartoon caricatures – of the Rolling Stones.
Dave survived the perils of an engineering apprenticeship to emerge at a draughtsman’s drawing board. He swapped this for a cartoonist’s pen in South Africa and spent the next 13 years working for leading national papers. An Antipodean Period followed in both Australia and New Zealand.

Lured back to Britain to join the Today newspaper in its early days Dave remained as its editorial cartoonist until it was closed nine years later. He moved on to Editorial cartoonist positions on the News of the World, the Mail on Sunday, The Sun and the Sunday Mail.

During this journey Dave has also completed advertising work, book illustration and humorous cartoons for a great variety of markets and picked up a number of awards including 2002 Cartoon Museum Political Cartoonist of the Year.

He is now settled in Lincolnshire with wife and assorted furry animals. Bloghorn says click G for Gaskill.
