Created by UK cartoonist and illustrator Gary Barker

Here you will find images of many of the 'usual suspects', David Cameron, Ed Miliband, Nick Clegg, Barack Obama and Nigel Farage, as well as many others, created for The Times, The Guardian, BBC, and a wide variety of publications and media services. There are also many examples of the illustrator's work, produced regularly for titles such as Estates Gazette and Financial Director magazines.

Gary's work has been appearing in both national and international publications for over seven years and he also produces artwork for all sections of the media and for international companies across the world.

He got his first regular slot was with the BBC, for whom he continued to work for two years. Since then his artwork appear on BBC Newsnight, Channel 4 News and regularly in The Times and The Guardian. His editorials can also be seen fortnightly in Tribune and business editorials appear weekly in Estates Gazette magazine.

His work has now appeared in most UK national and London based daily newspapers and several European titles. He was recently described as an 'iconic illustrator' by Dexigner, the international illustrators guide, for his work creating an editorials, to help promote Volvo's XC Coupe concept car.

He first created regular caricatures for the business title Accountancy Age. He has created a weekly caricature of a prominent business person and occasional politicians for two years before the publication closed. In 2010 he began creating an additional weekly business caricature for Estates Gazette. Many of these originals were bought by the subjects or by friends and family.

Gary works largely in ink and watercolour to produce quite traditional style images, but with a contemporary twist and he has on occasion produced vector style comment pieces.

His client base is varied and extensive, covering former broadsheet, tabloid and red top national newspapers for his editorials and property, financial, manufacturing, technology, education, accountancy and PR sectors for business titles.
