was an English artist noted as an illustrator of caricatures and humorous drawings.
His cartoons were noted for their pungent wit and it is said that they contributed to the Tory landslide of 1906 and the revival of Liberalism. He retired from drawing political cartoons during the Great War and instead worked freelance for many papers. His work was exhibited at the Coronation Exhibition in 1911.
