Pen & ink on board with blue crayon to indicate tone
Victor Weisz was born in Berlin, the son of a Hungarian Jewish jeweller and goldsmith. He began drawing caricatures and joined the radical anti-Hitler journal 12 Uhr Blatt.

a very nice tribute
Cartoon Museum's Tribute To Alison Brown
"Joe Sullivan, [The museum’s director] ,has told the Telegraph that its collection is ‘over-represented with works by white cisgender men..." "Joe Sullivan, said 'The Cartoon Museum, [is] moving towards displaying less Hogarths and more modern and diverse work.'" Please say it ain't so. If it is, how do we get rid of Joe Sullivan?
Hope everyones had a good Christmas. Just released the latest issue of Last Geek in Space. It's a Cartoon Museum special featuring Mark Stafford and Steve Marchant. Mark's GN with Dave Hine The Bad Bad Place was one of my fave reads of the last year. Episode's on all podcast platforms or the link below! Cheers.
I would love to see the competion cartoons At the time of Covid, talked about on Radio 4 this morning. Where are they?
Hi, life drawing fanatics! We have a December special offer for regular bi-weekly Friday evening life drawing sessions in at the Cartoon Museum with Art Model Collective in 2020. A fine gift opportunity for yourself or a beloved artist friend in your life...
My visit this July to the Cartoon Museum.. it's an amazing museum. Worth a visit.
The Centennial Anniversary of The Beano Until 2038
Any update on expected opening date? We will be traveling to London the week of May 19th
Hi, I sent my entry for 'The Cartoonist of the Year Competition' to the address advertised on your press releases and website to be delivered before the closing date and the Post Office have returned it today because it was undeliverable. After calling the museum and looking at your Facebook, I understand you moved before the closing date. Please may you consider my entry and others who've followed the instructions advertised to enter the competition and have had the same happen, as it seems fair to do so. Thank you.
I visited today with my daughter and we enjoyed looking around. She even recognised some of the cartoons. ( I may also have cheekily hidden some rocks around )
