Leslie Starke

Leslie Starke was a renowned British cartoonist whose career took him from a solicitor’s office in Cupar to the forefront of the cartooning world in London and beyond. Starke’s early work appeared in the Fife Herald around 1928-29 before he moved to London, dabbling in various jobs. Despite the destruction of his studio by bombing and serving in the RAF, he continued his passion for cartooning, contributing to publications like ‘London Opinion’, ‘Men Only’, ‘Punch’, and designing covers for ‘The New Yorker’.  Here you can explore Leslie Starke’s captivating work, which should be more widely known, on this page dedicated to his legacy.

He is not an easy man to find information on. I have only managed to locate one book which is here, although there are references to a few others, whilst the images have been taken from public sources.
