Born in Leamington Spa, England, in 1958, Tom Halliday has been a full time freelance cartoonist since 1987. He studied graphic design at Bath Academy of Art and following a succession of dead end jobs he stuck with the theme and focussed on cartooning following the publication in Private Eye. Since moving to West Cork in 1989 he has been a regular contributor of political cartoons and caricatures to The Sunday Independent in Dublin and The Southern Star in Skibbereen. He has also drawn topical gag cartoons for Phoenix Magazine and has recently taken up drawing two political cartoons a week for The Scotsman Newspaper in Edinburgh. As a caricaturist he has drawn at corporate events for clients such as Guinness, the telephone company formerly known as Telecom Eireann, Compaq Computers and others too hideously rich to mention.
From 1966-1999 in conjunction with The West Cork Arts Centre, he co-organised the Skibbereen Cartoon Weekend, which attracted cartoonists from home, and abroad and even other planets, not mentioning names.
He tried to make money out of the ‘Reynolds To Rainbow’ years with a collection of published cartoons in his book ‘Trading Faces’ [1996] He broke even which is sadly even worse than the present governments economic performance.
