Kathryn Lamb

Kathryn Lamb started drawing cartoons for
Private Eye in 1979 while reading English at St Hugh's College Oxford. She drew a strip cartoon for Private Eye entitled 'Lord Arthur and his Square Table' for several years, and now illustrates 'Pseuds Corner' for the same magazine, as well as contributing many cartoons.

Kathryn has worked for
The Oldie magazine since it began, again contributing many cartoons as well as illustrating the 'Not Many Dead' column in The Oldie and drawing her own strip entitled 'Fattypuffs', which appears in every issue.

Kathryn's work also appears in
The Spectator. In 2012 she won the Cartoon Arts Trust Award for Cartoon Jokes of the Year.

Kathryn has illustrated many books, including a book of Spike Milligan poems for Puffin, and has written and illustrated her own books for Puffin and the Piccadilly Press. She is the illustrator of a successful series of Arab proverb books (and other languages), for Tom Stacey International. Kathryn grew up in the Middle East. She once had to draw a Get Well card for King Hussein of Jordan. She was asked to draw a line of blonde women queueing up to donate their kidneys (borne on velvet and gold cushions) to the ailing king! This was good preparation for the more bizarre Pseuds Corner illustrations which she has done.

Kathryn's father was British Ambassador to Kuwait and then Norway.
