Hello.  I recently figured out I’m a cartoonist.  Having always vaguely been a cartoonist in a very secret and embarrassed sort of way,  I decided to do a course in it through the Cartoon Institute and now I’ve got a certificate and everything.  Though I’ve just discovered that the course I did no longer exists.  Which is a bit Narnian.

I quite often do cartoons about theatre and acting because I’m also a vaguely embarrassed actress.   A collection of my theatre cartoons are displayed in ‘Exhibition Work’.   These have been exhibited at The Orange Tree Theatre in Richmond;  The Corke Art Gallery in Liverpool; Clwyd  Theatr Cymru and most recently at The Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough.

If there is something you particularly like though, nothing to do with theatre or acting,  I happily and boundlessly cartoon in other genres.  Private commissioned work to date has included wedding invitations, baby announcement cards, special birthday pieces, Sherlock Holmes-themed cartoons, personalised greetings cards and illustration.

My thanks to Nick Tucker Photography for this rather glamourous photo of me;  to lovely Ilan for helping me to create this site and not least to you for taking time to look at my drawings today – I hope they make you smile.   Emily x
