Gerald Scarfe

He’s been like a massive pin sticking holes in the authority’s swollen balloons for five decades now, and Gerald Scarfe’s political cartoons show little sign of having the edge taken away from them. He studied with Ralph Steadman and counts Pink Floyd, Disney and the Royal Mail among his many collaborators, while in his latest book, Monsters: How George Bush Saved the World and Other Tall Stories, we recall 50 years of his leader-bashing, including lacerating images of Churchill, Thatcher, Blair and Brown.
