Drawing your attention: Four Centuries of Political Caricature #TCDToons

The Lobby of the House of Commons Liborio Prosperi 1886 1

I helped launch the exhibition Drawing your attention: Four Centuries of Political Caricature on Friday night in the Long Room, Trinity College Dublin. I drew live caricatures of the invitees and the exhibition was formally launched by Mary Robinson. It was quite the venue to get to draw in! Trinity Library is in possession of the Nicholas Robinson collection of some 2400 political cartoons, gifted by the former cartoonist himself.

An exhibition of four centuries of political cartoons opened at the Library of Trinity College Dublin this week. ‘Drawing your attention: Four Centuries of Political Caricature’ includes the Library’s own collections, with originals from its extensive 18th and 19th century collection gifted by Nicholas Robinson, alumnus, writer, lawyer and former cartoonist. The contemporary works in the exhibition are on loan from freelance artist, Martyn Turner, who is best associated with The Irish Times.

On A Bicycle Made for Two!

This tandem bike wedding caricature gift was a lot of fun to draw. It’s absolutely stuffed with references from the newlywed couple’s lives, from charity work to Game of Thrones (you can see the Night King running off in the distance!) Other important elements were their love of GAA, music, tea and scones, and there’s some snowboarding going to happen too. In the background there’s a cheetah and rhino looking on. Of course Dublin and Meath are famous for their cheetahs and rhinos. 🙂
