Rupert Besley - cartoonist


[Please note I am currently taking a break from cartooning and am not available for new commissions]

I’ve worked full-time as a freelance cartoonist for 40 years. Much of my work has been with book illustration and postcards, but my cartoons have appeared in other places - from bus timetables to beermats and death-by-Powerpoint presentations.

Subjects I’ve been asked to tackle have ranged from sofas and golf to electromagnetic compatibility and funerals in Glasgow.
