“Where the interest and fascination for caricature design came from I've never understood, except through my love of the theatre and my early idolatry of theatre people - which after fifty years in the profession has never left me.

My first official poster illustration was Ton's of Money at the National Theatre. Followed by The Importance of Being Ernest at the Royalty Theatre, London. From then on I concentrated on book illustrations beginning with my first for Clement Freud on Hangovers!

Below is a small selection of book covers and posters with illustrations by Clive. To see more of Clive’s caricatures and to purchase signed prints of his work go to www.clivefranciscaricaturist.com
