Jak (Raymond Allen Jackson) (1927-1997)

Jak was born in London’s West End on 11 March 1927, the son of a tailor. He was educated at Clipstone Road School and Lyulph Stanley Central School, and studied at Willesden School of Art. His three years of National Service were mostly spent in the Army Education Corps teaching conscripts to paint, while his first job involved retouching pubic hair on photographs for Health & Efficiency. He went on, in the early fifties, to work with Keymers Advertising Agency, and to make his first contributions to Punch, Lilliput and other publications. In 1952, he joined the Evening Standard, first as an illustrator on the television page and, after thirteen years, as P��olitical Cartoonist (succeeding Vicky).
