From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Scottish Cartoon Art Studio is a commercial art studio based in Glasgow, Scotland, made up of a group of professional cartoonists working on a collaborative basis. In this respect the Studio is unique in Scotland.

Christopher Sommerville opened the Studio in 1999 with assistance from The Princes Trust and Glasgow’s East End Partnership. Although the Studio works in diverse media, their house speciality is caricature and their most significant achievement to date in this field is their ongoing Fizzers project.

Working alongside Chris are his father Tommy Sommerville, co-creator of the 1990s Glaswegian humour comic Electric Soup and co-founder of the Scottish Cartoonists & Comic Artists Members (SCCAM) Club, and Terry Anderson, President of the Scottish Artists Union. Various artists have come and gone from the Studio team but, along with Derek Gray and Brian Flynn, the current line-up is made up of cartoonists present since the Studio’s opening.

Among notable figures who own caricatures by the Studio’s artists are Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons, fim director and author Michael Moore and HRH the Prince of Wales.
