Caricatured by Steve Bright



This caricature of me was drawn by my cartoonist pal Steve Bright. It was kind of an exercise in no-holds-barred caricaturing. I'm pretty sure Steve isn't quite so cruel when at live caricaturing gigs, or he'd never get asked back. But I'm not (too) vain, I love it! And it's now on my wall, as well as my blog.

Steve cut his teeth at the Beano and Dandy and was co-creator of Bananaman (he also kindly drew a Bananaman for my son). He's a superb draughtsman and to see him draw live is a joy. Check out his website Steve Bright Cartoons.

The egg-shaker, by the way, is a reference to my "musical" exploits at the Shrewsbury Cartoon Festival.

  1. He's made you look like my accountant which is strange because I always thought you looked like my accountant. Are you my accountant?

  2. If I was in any position to be your accountant, I'd be my accountant too. But I'm not. I only got a CSE in maths. Grade one though, O-level equivalent. Younger readers have no idea what I'm talking about.

  3. That's an awesome caricature - is it digital of pen & ink?

  4. It's pen and ink, Tim, and Steve kindly sent me the original. But the tone was added on the computer.

  6. Indeed. The one he did of you was even more "no holds barred" ;-)
