Life in the Laughs Lane

Cartoonists Club of Great Britain in association with Ossie Newell Foundation

Featuring Tim Harries, Simon Chadwick and Richard Skipworth

In this illustrated event, professional cartoonists Simon Chadwick, Tim Harries, and Richard Skipworth reveal how they started and how they continued in the business of drawing funny for money. They are all members of the Cartoonists’ Club of Great Britain, a venerable and illustrious organisation formed back in the 60’s in Fleet Street; and will be happy to answer your questions on the life of a freelance cartoonist, and will be showing examples of their work.

All profits go to the Ossie Newell Foundation’s support for PhD studentships into Stroke Rehabilitation Research. Find out more at
