Mike Jupp cartoon images of British life are unique
Mike Jupp was born in 1948 in Erith, Kent. He studies at the West Sussex College of Art and Design, gaining qualifications in art and architecture, plus diplomas in Art and Advertising Design.
His very varied career started in London working for an American design and marketing company. Later, he worked freelance as an illustrator, copywriter and cartoonist before going on to California to work on two cartoon film series.
Mike worked in Seoul, South Korea before returning to San Francisco and then back home to England in 1986.
Mike's ability to create images in both pictures and words has lead to an enormous demand for his talents. He worked with Central Television where he created The Dreamstone (1986) followed by Bimbles Bucket and Digit'n Dawson cartoon characters. Amongst his other conquests was a commission for Steven Spielberg to paint Empire of the Sun - the crew and more recently the design of his novel Retribution in 1999.
Mike lives in Bognor, West Sussex with his wife Nikki and two daughters, Eleanor and Merrin.
