A freelance illustrator and cartoonist

Saffron Swire is a London-based journalist, editor and illustrator. Her cartoons and illustrations have been previously published in The Economist, TortoiseNew Statesman and Reaction. 


While studying for her master's degree in journalism, she craved an artistic outlet to sketch a path into the world of satire and began posting doodles on Instagram. She has since covered two general elections, one pandemic, and caricatured everyone from Gwyneth Paltrow to Donald Trump and Boris Johnson (no one is safe). 

If you would like prints of her work or are interested in commissioning, please contact or message me on Instagram @saftirical for immediate enquiries.
