The Really Heavy Greatcoat Year in Review 2016 Part One

Nick Miller, co-creator of The Really Heavy Greatcoat cartoon with me, which we wrote on a regular basis for some years, delivers the first part of this year’s “Year in Review” early, in response to the US election results…


Nick has been a cartoonist since he was able to hold a pencil. A cartoonist, illustrator and graphic designer living in Lancaster, he’s been working in this field for more than 25 years with clients in the UK, US, Italy, China, Luxembourg, Croatia.

The Really Heavy Greatcoat cartoon, mainly written by me, John Freeman, ran in a number of Lancaster ‘zines and online on virtual-lancaster.net. There’s the start of an archive on Tapastic here.

His cartoons have been used in academic texts, advertising, apps, children’s books, children’s comics, graphic anthologies and sport magazines.
