Cartoons for Publications and Websites

Cartoons and caricatures can bring a website, blog, book or magazine to life with their colour, humour and instant visual communication of information. Illustrated words are so much more attractive to read than just endless blocks of grey text and cartoon illustrations can often say more than a thousand words!




Charity-fundraising book of cartoons needs your help!

DRAW THE LINE Here  is a crowdfunding venture launched by English Pen and the Professional Cartoonists’ Organisation with crowdfunding and promotion facilitated by Crowdshed.

English PEN is the founding centre of a worldwide writers’ association with 145 centres in more than 100 countries. They campaign to defend writers and readers in the UK and around the world whose human right to freedom of expression is at risk. CrowdShed is a new UK-based crowdfunding platform and hub. They connect and support people to help bring their ideas to life and create new funding opportunities. We want to bring about the democratisation of funding by educating and empowering every person in the crowd.

In the wake of the terrible events in Paris on 7th and 8th January, English Pen decided to do something to help contribute to the funds set up by Charlie Hebdo for the families of the victims and also to gain further support for their work campaigning for freedom of speech worldwide. The most obvious thing to do was to ask some of the best cartoonists in the UK to donate cartoons about the attack on freedom of speech by terrorists and to publish them in a book.

Draw The Line Here is that book and your generosity is sought in order to make it the worthwhile success that it ought to be.
