The Sun takes a shine to Andy Davey…

As Christian Adams mentions in his post about bitchy cartoonists (link in post below), there aren’t that many political cartooning jobs around. Even less if you want to be in one of the nationals.
So every time there’s a new signing, it’s big news/gossip in cartooning circles.

The latest to land a major job, is fellow PCOer, and all-round talented nice guy, Andy Davey – who’s become Political Cartoonist for the Sun.
So while most cartoonists are busy in their struggle merely to survive the recession carnage, Andy (or That Bastard as he’s now affectionately known) picks up one of the biggest jobs to come up in a very long while.

Truly well deserved!
An inspired choice by the powerful in Wapping.

  4. Andy Davey Says:

    Actually, I ought to make it clear that they haven’t “hired” me – I’m still free lance. They’re simply using my stuff regularly.

  5. Morten Says:

    Aren’t we all?
    No really…
    Are there any cartoonists on full staff contract?

  6. Adams Says:

    No contract here! (What’s happened to the talented Tom Johnson?)
