Some of Charles Griffin’s earliest published caricatures appeared in the Chelsea Football Club programme in 1976 and he sold his first pocket cartoon to the Daily Mail in the same year. He freelanced for various publications, including Punch and the Observer as well as teaching part time at Camberwell School of Art. Charles Griffin became political cartoonist at the Sunday People in 1983 and then worked for the Daily Mirror from 1985. In 1996 Griffin left the Daily Mirror to take over from Rick Brookes at the Daily Express. In 1998 Griffin left the Daily Express to draw the Saturday cartoon for the Sun, replacing Stanley Franklin. He has since rejoined the Daily Mirror.
