Chris Burke, the widely published caricaturist and illustrator – and member – gives a local blog a tour of his home and studio in Royal Tunbridge Wells. Read the resulting feature interview, and see plenty of examples of Chris’ work,  here.

The Guardian has an interview with David Fickling and family – the tribe behind weekly comic The Phoenix – told in comic-strip format.

Charlie Paul, director of the Ralph Steadman documentary For No Good Reason, shares a short time-lapse film showing the member in action. (Brought to our attention by the Cartoon Museum – follow them on Twitter: @cartoonmuseumuk.)

Following a long-awaited British – or is that Scottish? – victory in the men’s singles event at Wimbledon, Andy Murray has been popping up in many a cartoon. He appears alongside his mother, Judy, in the 75th anniversary issue of The Beano; has been knighted courtesy of Procartoonist Andy Davey in The Sun; and was cynically adopted by the politicians, in cartoons by Christian Adams for The Telegraph and Peter Brookes for The Times.

  1. Good stuff Rob, as always. I’m always intrigued/horrified at the idea of letting anybody other than fully vaccinated types into my studio, and jealous of artists who are tidy.

  2. Yes, good read and always fascinating to see artists in their habitat. However, I am suspicious of overly tidy studios, I thik maybe there was a quick tidy up for the photographs! My nirvana would be to have whatever I wanted to hand rather than wate half a morning looking for something.
