Ad campaign: Taylor's Tales
As a cartoonist, it's always great to be asked to illustrate an advertising campaign - and even better when the campaign is going to run for a while, and promotes a product you yourself enjoy!
In early 2016, I was commissioned by London-based agency Sell! Sell! to produce a cartoon for an upcoming print ad for Yorkshire-based brewery Timothy Taylor's. The agency's directors were aware of my work for Private Eye, The Spectator and The Times - all publications in which the Taylor's adverts would appear.
I was delighted to be approached - the brief was fun and engaging, and I've been a keen drinker of Timothy Taylor's Landlord for years!
In the five years since, I've drawn a growing number of cartoons for what has evolved into an ongoing campaign (the cartooning duties are shared between myself and legendary Private Eye/Punch cartoonist Ed McLachlan).
Magazines and newspapers aside, the ads have been used on billboards and Tube posters - and my cartoons have also adorned Taylor's beer mats.
You can see all my Timothy Taylor's cartoons to date on the company's website.
Cartoons can be a fantastic way to draw the eye, lighten the mood and get your message across quickly.
