The Cycling Cartoonist: A book of cycling cartoons

Coming in 2017. Drawing starts now


I’ve got some exciting news. I have been commissioned to draw a book of cycling cartoons. The provisional title is ‘The Cycling Cartoonist’. The book will be published in June 2017 by Bloomsbury, who publish a good number of cycling books (as well as Harry Potter).

So, I will be spending much of the next six months drawing the cartoons for the book. It is a slightly daunting prospect as I will need to produce a lot of new work, but I know I have plenty of good material lined up in notebooks and on the back of cycling cafe napkins, so I’m really looking forward to getting stuck into it.

I have various minor cycling exploits planned in order to gather ideas, and there will hopefully be blog updates as I go. But I’m also hoping to talk to people who cycle to help me develop ideas for new cartoons. This could be you – if you live in London or Essex and meeting up is doable I’ll happily buy you a coffee or beer in return for your thoughts on cycling (let me know). But I’m sure there will be ways the online community can help as well – watch this space.

For followers of my church-themed work: Don’t worry, I’m still doing my weekly Church Times cartoon, adding new content to, and in fact I have a pending announcement which might interest you (Cue intriguing chords, suspense, etc).

So anyway, I’d better pump up my tyres, get myself to the starting ramp, clip in, and get on with it. Updates will follow, and in the meantime you can see my existing cycling cartoons here:


    1. Chris,
      Thank you for cycling cartoon book enthusiasm – much appreciated. Details of editions for other countries are being worked on, but whatever happens I’m sure that you will be able to get hold of it somehow. It will certainly be on Amazon UK, but I imagine rather more widely than that.

  1. Love the cartoon, and will buy the book when it is available for daughter. who currently has one bike, but I am sure would have more if she had anywhere to put them!

    I however no longer have the balance to ride a two wheeler, but occasionally dither about a three wheel. But my thing is sewing machines. 🙁 and the fabric they require.

  2. Excellent news – sounds like it will answer the Christmas present problem for various members of my extended family. I would be happy to meet up and discuss ideas – will drop you a line.
