A New Judge

Illustration commissioned to commemorate the swearing in of a new judge. The client requested the style of the Victorian, Vanity Fair ‘Spy Cartoons’ by Leslie Ward after seeing others I had done in this style. The Vanity Fair style cartoons are perfect for this sort of event or profession.
These are gentle caricatures, nothing too extreme. As Leslie Ward (Spy) said: ‘If I could sum up the art in a sentence, it would be that caricature should be a comic impression with a kindly touch, and always devoid of vulgarity’.
