Ken Mahood Cartoons
121 images Created 10 Oct 2011
Punch cartoons by Kenneth Mahood. Yet another versatile cartoonist spanning five decades, and whose work ranges from early joke cartoons in a similar style to ffolkes, colour covers, biting social satire and perhaps what Mahood is best known for: the thought provoking political Big Cut cartoons of the 1970s and 1980s. His depiction of Margaret Thatcher was savage, surreal and sympathetic. Politics under Mahood's gaze is re-cast in a wonderfully mischievous cross-dressing of the Arts and Current Affairs while his social commentary is sharply observed.
