Edward McLachlan (born 1940)


Edward Rolland McLachlan (born 1940)

Widely regarded as one of the greatest living English cartoonists, Ed McLachlan offers a comical but often cutting commentary on modern life. From his gormless, baggy-suited businessmen to his ungainly bucktoothed women, his undeniably British sense of humour makes him a master of the macabre with an eye for the ridiculous. In every cleverly observed image, he takes the mundane and delivers the hilariously absurd.

Ed McLachlan was born in Humberstone, Leicestershire, on 22 April 1940, and was educated at Wyggeston Grammar School, Leicester. He studied at the Leicester College of Art (1956-59), returning to become a lecturer in graphics between 1967 and 1970. McLachlan began his career as a cartoonist as a regular contributor to
Punch in 1961, after he sent them a scrapbook of his cartoons.
