Ben Jennings Award-Winning Satirical Cartoonist

Ben Jennings has been drawing cartoons for as long as he can remember; in his Maths class at school he'd be drawing scathing caricatures of his teacher instead of Venn diagrams and at 15 he began selling caricatures. Six years on and Ben has produced cartoons for The Guardian, The i newspaper, The Morning Star and The Stool Pigeon music newspaper, among others, as well as taking part in various exhibitions and producing two animated music videos for MOBO-award winning rapper Akala, used on the rapper's website. Ben was also awarded "Political Cartoon of the Year 2011" for a piece he produced based on the hunt for former Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi, published in The Guardian in August 2011.
