Clive is Chairman of the Professional Cartoonists' Organisation.
Hello, I’m Clive Goddard, a professional cartoonist and children’s author based in Oxford. I have been living off what are generally considered to be ‘my wits’ since the 1990s during which time I have drawn for everyone from Private Eye to Playboy. This has involved the production of thousands of small drawings, some of which are topical and make serious points, and some of which are just daft and funny.
As well as working for newspapers and magazines I have produced a range of humourous cards for Paperlink which, given the nature of such things, are less political in tone but considerably smuttier. I also regularly draw for business and industry both in the studio and in person at conferences. My clients have included the BBC, the NHS and the RNLI as well as many organisations who don’t go by an acronym, such as The Metropolitan Police, the builders McAlpine and the confectioners, Mars which, from a catering point of view, was a personal favourite.
I am the Chairman of the UK’s Professional Cartoonist’s Organisation (PCO) which represents the country’s finest cartooning talent.
In December of 2022 I won the Pocket Cartoon of the Year Award at the London Political Cartoon Awards.
