radio times 1- Bob Sheriffs

Just look at that caricature of Winston Churchill in the lower left of the last image.

Bob Sheriffs was a caricaturist for the Radio Times back in it's glory days when all you had were gramophone and jerries and you bloody well raised a family on two guineas a week.

Bob stands out in the massive Radio Times illustration book because of the contrasting thicknesses of his lines and very expressive figures. His work actually looks quite contemporary, probably because you can achieve a similar effect on Illustrator CS5.
