Cartoonist Les Gibbard 1945-2010 | UK news | The Guardian

Les Gibbard, illustrator, animator and political cartoonist on the Guardian for 25 years, has died at the age of 64.

He joined the Guardian in 1969, following in the footsteps of Sir David Low and Bill Papas, and at just 23 was the newspaper's youngest ever cartoonist.

Throughout the offices of the prime ministers Harold Wilson, Edward Heath, James Callaghan, Margaret Thatcher and John Major, his incisive daily pictorial commentaries gave readers a unique slant on world history.



Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
