Clive is an Oxford based professional cartoonist with credits including Private Eye, Punch and Playboy (as well as other publications which don’t begin with P). He draws card designs for Paperlink, children’s non-fiction books for Scholastic and is the Chairman of the UK’s Professional Cartoonists’ Association.
Back in 2006, he was approached by Karen Gadd to draw a few black and white cartoons depicting some concepts around something called TRIZ. It was an intriguing topic which he knew nothing about, and quite different to his normal work . Since then he has attended Oxford Creativity workshops in an attempt to tune his brain into a TRIZ way of thinking. Luckily, he found the concepts to be hugely interesting and the Oxford Creativity team to be an energetic and likeable bunch who have treated him like family.
Over the years he has produced hundreds of full colour images illustrating TRIZ related concepts, some simple single panel cartoons and some complex, multi-panelled strips, which the team use in their workshops, communications and publications.
He is extremely pleased to be working for a company like Oxford Creativity who not only appreciate the importance of visual humour in communications, but have closely involved him in their business and introduced him to a new world of ideas. The cartoons, he's been told, have become a central part of what makes Oxford Creativity different and distinctive.
