- Matt Pritchett
Matthew Pritchett MBE (born July 14, 1964) has been the pocket cartoonist on the Daily Telegraph newspaper since 1988.
Pritchett studied graphics at St. Martins School of Art. Unable to get work as a film cameraman, he worked as a waiter in a pizza restaurant, drawing cartoons in his spare time. Matt had his first drawings published in the New Statesman and his work has also appeared in Punch and The Spectator.
The son of Telegraph columnist Oliver Pritchett and the grandson of V. S. Pritchett, Matt and his wife have four children. He was awarded an MBE in 2002 and, in 2003, The Observer listed him as one of the 50 funniest people in the UK.
On 23 February 2006, the Matt cartoon became available in the Daily Telegraph podcast's picture window.
