Neil A Dishington (born 1934), known as ‘Dish’
Neil Dishington is a widely published cartoonist, who specialises in producing one-liners and interpretating written articles.
Neil Dishington studied painting at Loughborough College of Art, Hornsey College of Art and Central College of Art, and then began his career as a teacher. He turned to cartooning on the encouragement of his then flatmate, David McKee, creator of Mr Benn and Elmer the Patchwork Elephant.
