Guardian: Three decades of Steve Bell

Steve Bell has been drawing cartoons for the Guardian for an impressive 30 years this year.

I interviewed him at his home last year for a feature and it was amazing to hear him talk about the days of having artwork sent between Brighton, Manchester and London by train and taxi, and hail the fax machine as a model marvel.

As the Cartoon Museum in London celebrates three decades of Bell’s work with a retrospective, he writes and talks on video for the Guardian about about his rise to prominence as one of the country’s leading newspaper cartoonists.

So take the cartoon IQ test and see if you can decipher the correct meaning or ‘just sigh, give up and check the answers’.
