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.

Diamond Jubilee

£36.2m a year from the Public Purse; 60 years and counting. A waste of our money, a symbol of a healthy society or a lucrative tourist attraction? What do you think? <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/ben-jennings/diamond-jubilee_b_1267593.html" target="_hplink"><img src="http://i.huffpost.com/gen/495666/thumbs/s-QUEEN-small300.jpg"></a>

Stop Preaching Gove!

This week it came out that Michael Gove, the education secretary, has a plan to send a copy of the King James Bible to <em>every</em> school in the country - although this has run into a spot of bother as Cameron told Gove that this project must not be funded by taxpayer's money. <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/ben-jennings/stop-preaching-gove_b_1216146.html" target="_hplink"><img src="http://i.huffpost.com/gen/470912/thumbs/s-BENJENNINGSGOD-small300.jpg"></a>

Cameron Blows and Ready, Steady, Caught!

This week has been full of drama and it's barely even halfway through! As depicted in my cartoon, Westminster and the SNP have had a war of words over Scottish Independence. <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/ben-jennings/scottish-independence-and-antony-worrall-thompson_b_1198015.html" target="_hplink"><img src="http://i.huffpost.com/gen/461969/thumbs/s-CAMBLOWS-small300.jpg"></a>
