David Haldane, born and bred in Northumberland, and a former graphic design student at Newcastle-upon-Tyne Polytechnic. His career as a cartoonist began at Northern Press newspapers based in South Shields, and rapidly took off after having his work accepted by Punch magazine. During the 1990’s he regularly illustrated the cover of Punch and produced ‘Agent Orange’, a weekly full page comic strip which ran for five years. As a freelance cartoonist he has also enjoyed being a daily contributor to the Times newspaper, often featuring on the front page. His work has also regularly appeared in the Daily Mirror, the Sun, the Sunday Express, the Guardian, the Telegraph, the Daily Mail, the Countryside Magazine and Private Eye.

David Haldane holds an old ‘Punch’ open at a page featuring his work. Many copies of the famous magazine between 1979 and 1992 featured Haldane’s work, both full colour and black and white

A while back we had the front of the building painted. We were shocked when the scaffolding put our shop inside a cavern! Fortunately, David Haldane was visiting York, he realised our dilemma and drew for us a cartoon to adorn the scaffolding. This act of generosity helped enormously. Many new customers came in because of that cartoon. Thank you David!
