      Gerald Scarfe’s autobiography Long Drawn Out Trip: My Life will be published on 26th September 2019 by Little, Brown. For the first time, the legendary cartoonist and designers tells his life story. With captivating, often thrilling stories, Gerald takes us from his childhood and early days at Punch and Private Eye, through his long and occasionally tumultuous career as the Sunday Times cartoonist, to his film-making at the BBC and much-loved designs for Pink Floyd’s The Wall and Disney’s Hercules.

      Also, on 7th November, another publication: Scarfe: Sixty Years Of Being Rude – a beautifully illustrated coffee-table book that presents work spanning Gerald’s incredible artistic career. In Scarfe, Gerald Scarfe’s work is presented as no book has presented it before. This fully illustrated, 576-page coffee-table volume reveals the truth of sixty years of politics and culture, packed with images that have defined not only one artist’s career, but also twentieth and twenty-first century British life. A showcase of Gerald’s glittering career in design, reportage and showbusiness, Scarfe presents drawings, sculptures and photographs alongside witty and poignant captions and stories. His muses: Thatcher, Clinton, Blair, May and Trump, as well as many other titanic figures of our times are all here, revealed as they really are by Gerald’s cutting pen. Carefully curated by the artist himself, this monumental book is the definitive guide to the career of a national treasure.

      The legendary cartoonist and designer tells his life story for the first time.

      In 1964 a young artist sat in the public gallery of the House of Commons, sketching former Prime Minister Winston Churchill. The Sunday Times refused to print the resulting drawing of this frail, aged figure - so far from the public image of the man - it was too truthful.

      In the sixty years since, Gerald Scarfe's work has continued to expose the truth, and has appeared many times in the pages of the Sunday Times, in the Evening Standard, New Yorker, Private Eye and Time, as well as on the walls of the V&A and the Tate, the stages of the English National Opera and the English National Ballet, and cinema screens around the world in the form of Pink Floyd The Wall and Disney's Hercules.

      In Long Drawn Out Trip, Gerald tells his life story for the first time. With captivating, often thrilling stories, he takes us back to his wartime childhood and the terrible curse of asthma, through his days as an advertising draughtsman, to his field reporting in Vietnam and the giddy highs of rock 'n' roll. He also reveals the process of cartooning - and the ways that certain subjects have reacted to his visions of them. Along the way he has been car-jacked in Derry, dined with royals, and thoroughly upset Mrs Mary Whitehouse. It is a very personal, wickedly funny and caustically insightful account of an artist's life at the forefront of contemporary culture and society.

      Gerald Scarfe began his career in the sixties working for Punch and Private Eye before taking a job as a political cartoonist for the Daily Mail. He then worked for Time magazine in New York before starting his long association with the Sunday Times. He now draws weekly for the Evening Standard. His varied career has seen him work with Pink Floyd (The Wall, Wish You Were Here), Roger Waters and Eric Clapton (The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking), Disney (Hercules), English National Ballet (The Nutcracker), Los Angeles Opera (Fantastic Mr Fox) as well as produce such iconic images as those for the titles of Yes, Minister and Yes, Prime Minister. His work has featured in the New Yorker and various BBC TV films such as Scarfe on Sex and Scarfe on Class. Exhibitions of his paintings and drawings have appeared in the Tate Gallery, the National Portrait Gallery and the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery. He is viewed by many as both a national treasure and a genius.

      I don't need your tongue to cut me (Roger Waters)
    • Neu

      Gerald Scarfe hat einen Werbespot für vegane Schokolade von Katjes designed. Die Zeichnungen sind sehr typisch, die Kühe maschieren wie die Hämmer in 'The Wall' und die Pflanzen wachsen am Ende nahezu so, wie die Flowers in 'The Wall' aus der Schokolade. In der ganzen Art ähnelt der Werbespot anschließend ein wenig der "What Shall We Do Now"-Sequenz in der die Dinge schließlich zur Schokolade verschmelzen...
