‘His genius lies in being witty without being nasty’ (Charles Moore, quoted in Max Davidson,
Daily Telegraph, 17 October 2008)

Matt’s much-loved pocket cartoons provide a consistently original take on the big news stories of the day.

The son of Daily Telegraph columnist Oliver Pritchett and grandson of novelist Sir Victor Pritchett, Matt Pritchett was born on 14 July 1964. He attended a grammar school in South East London, and studied Graphics at St Martin’s School of Art. Unable to get work as a film camera man, he took a job as a waiter in a pizzeria, drawing cartoons in his spare time. His first cartoons were published in the
New Statesman.

Matt gained his position as Pocket Cartoonist at the
Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph following the death of Mark Boxer in 1988. He continues to produce his daily jokes for them (nearly 3000 in total) and his work has also appeared in Punch and the Spectator. The annual anthologies of his Telegraph cartoons are a must for the Christmas stocking.

The winner of many awards, Matt received an MBE in 2002 in recognition of his significant contribution to British journalism.

He, his wife – the freelance writer, Pascale Smets – and their four children live in Blackheath. His sister, Georgina, was a scriptwriter for
Spitting Image.
