From Start to Finish - Making Cartoons with Martin Rowson

Martin Rowson shows us his studio and how he works.

This is from The Lakes International Comic Art Festival 2021 gallery show "What a Fur Cup: An exhibition of the political cartoons and comics of Martin Rowson."

"For nearly 40 years Martin Rowson has been the scourge of the political establishment, focusing his unflinching eye and scurrilous wit on those in power. 

"His cartoons for the Guardian, Daily Mirror, Independent, New Statesman and many more, draw from an encyclopaedic knowledge of western culture and combine with a breath-taking talent for image making. 

"His comics, including The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman and The Communist Manifesto take apparently challenging texts and make them accessible and enlightening for a whole new generation of readers. 

"'What a Fur Cup' will feature some of Rowson’s most powerful political cartoons, caricatures and comics and present an entertaining journey through the past forty years of politics and celebrity."
