You’ll find examples of pocket cartoons, strip cartoons and social/political cartoons, for national newspapers and magazines, as well as for commercial clients. COOKSON has drawn for calendars, greetings cards, newsletters and packaging – and has illustrated many books.

His humour is gentle - and his style has been described as ‘loose’. He is particularly good at facial expressions, background architecture, children and a wide range of financial and sporting topics.


The Cartoons!

“One of the most common questions people ask is, ‘Do you do the captions as well?’ Perhaps they imagine that I just draw a picture, in the hope that it will become funny if someone puts a suitably funny caption below it.” COOKSON
