London Cartoonist and Caricaturist Simon Ellinas
Cartoons, Caricatures and Illustrations for many uses!
CARTOONS, CARICATURES and illustrations have been used for at least a couple of centuries where more straightforward images simply didn’t tell the entire story. From satirical paintings to political pamphlets, these illustrations have strived to ‘paint a thousand words’ in order to flesh out the matters or events being portrayed in society, magazines, newspapers and books.
These days, a lucky few cartoonists have regular positions in the broadsheets and tabloids of countries around the world. There they can make their voices heard by adding colour and depth to the day’s issues in very graphic satire in the form of topical cartoon and caricature illustration. I have been lucky enough to have been commissioned many times for some of these publications but most of my work comes from businesses and individuals who need illustrations in their company magazines or books that they are publishing.
Not JUST cartoons, caricatures and illustrations!
I provide caricatures drawn from photos as unique gifts for private individuals and for businesses. These commissions are often for leaving presents, birthdays, weddings, anniversaries or to commemorate the achievement of a company business goal. Ranging from individual caricatures through to groups of up to sixty people (retaining quality throughout) these humorous gifts can be in black and white or colour and range in detail according to each person’s requirements.
This website aims to give you an all-round view of my work as a cartoonist and caricaturist and, in spite of being based in London, the internet gives me the power to provide illustrations for you wherever you are in the world. Please take a look at the galleries and LET ME KNOW if I can do anything for you!
