Adrian is a caricaturist, cartoonist, and author. As a kid, he was tutored at ITV's Spitting Image Workshop, with the permission of the show's creators, Roger Law, Peter Fluck, and TV comedy guru John Lloyd.
His clients have included the band Madness, Jongleurs, and Anglia TV. He has produced political cartoons for The Sunday Telegraph, The Scotsman, The TES, Time Out, The Sun, and The Daily Mail. He draws a regular cartoon for History Today, and has also written about Georgian satire for that magazine. His articles on 18th-century history have appeared in The Lancet and The Erotic Review.
In 2007, he produced a cover and wrote/illustrated historical spreads for the QI Annuals. More recently, he wrote and illustrated The Gin Lane Gazette. Adrian describes this book as a kind of Georgian Heat magazine: a compendium of bawdy, scandalous, stories from a fictional 18th-century newspaper. It was published by Unbound in 2013.
