Cartoons

I want to tell you about another site I do: http://www.cartooncorner.co.uk/

Here’s the history behind it:

I used to work in a school that had a staff common room. Papers were bought each day, and some weeklies. Staff could pay a small amount each term and keep all the used copies of the papers. I loved to get Punch.

I cut out the cartoons I thought were funny and pasted them into my Boots Scrap Book.

Here we are, nearly 50 years later, and I still have those books.

Some of the cartooons are still hugely funny, some are not. But I wanted to post a collection on-line. Mostly they seem to be British. Very British.

My idea is simply to celebrate these great cartoonists such as Michael Heath, Ken Pyne and even Bill Tidy. I am not making any money from it, and try to find links to individual artist’s websites, and if you know any, let me know. Or, if your work is represented and you are not happy about it, just let me know.
