J.W. Taylor: Royal Wedding Cartoon

"Mr and Mrs Robinson request the pleasure
of our company at the marriage on their
television set of Her Royal Highness."

Everything old is new again.

Here's a cartoon by one of my favorite Punch cartoonists, J.W. Taylor, commemorating another Royal Wedding: the 1947 wedding of Princess (now Queen) Elizabeth.

I love Taylor's easy, smooth dry brush technique. More of his grand cartoons are here.

A big thanks to Peter Robinson for sharing the above, as well as the below Chris Riddell cartoon with all of us. Now, let's all take a screen grab of the wedding cake cuz that's as close as us rabble are gonna get to actually getting a piece!
