Description

Neil Kerber has been bringing a smile to the nation’s faces for over 20 years. Twice winner at the SJA Press Awards and named ‘Joke Cartoonist of the Year’ in 2011 at the Cartoon Art Trust Awards (the cartoon industry's Oscars), Neil’s pedigree as a cartoonist is unrivalled - with fans and collectors of his original works ranging from Steven Spielberg to Charles Saatchi.

Neil is best known for his cartoons in Britain’s best-selling current affairs magazine, Private Eye, where his famous “Supermodels” strip has appeared in every issue for the last 25 years. His work can also be seen in publications like the Daily Mirror, GQ Magazine and Vogue; and has appeared in projects for brands such as Harvey Nichols, DKNY and Adobe.

Kerber's quirky-yet-simple style has been described as cute, warm, silly, and at times weird; while the jokes have been known to bring a full-belly laugh to the reader. As one of the very best cartoonists, Neil knows better than anybody the powerful mood-enhancing benefits of doodling.

Drawing cartoons is a wonderful way to express oneself and have fun whilst learning a new talent. Anyone of any artistic ability can put pen to paper and simply have fun; cartoons have no rules! Not only is drawing cartoons incredibly fun, it has therapeutic qualities, aiding creativity and imagination and releasing endorphins that bring us feelings of happiness, proving that visual humour can say much more than words ever can!

The private cartoon masterclass is held at The Groucho Club, where Neil has been a member for over two decades. Opened in 1985 as an alternative to stuffy gentleman’s clubs by a group of publishers wishing for somewhere to meet, share ideas and relax, The Groucho Club is famed for being a popular hangout of high-profile figures in the media, entertainment and arts industry. Join Neil in one of the public areas of Soho’s most exclusive private members’ club and soak up the history and unique atmosphere during the masterclass, drawing on the creative and whimsical ambience for inspiration to your cartoons.

What’s more, Truly guests will exclusively receive a signed print of a Neil Kerber cartoon to take home on the day of the experience. Guests can choose from a wide variety of signed prints from Neil Kerber's website, details of which will be provided after purchase.
