Jimmy Cricket delighted with Twitter caricature

Caricature of Jimmy CricketJimmy Cricket was both surprised and delighted when a caricature of him was posted on Twitter.

The artist behind the creation is called Blist, aka Andy Cartledge, a cartoonist and illustrator. He is based in South Yorkshire and draws cartoons for the Rotherham Advertiser.

Famous comedian Jimmy, 70, said: “I was really impressed with this illustration of me, which has been created with fine detail in mind.

“Not only does the drawing have me depicted in my trademark attire of dress suit, bowler hat and wellies marked with ‘L’ and ‘R’, but the artist has even included me wearing one glove!” (Jimmy often wears this glove for one of his jokes).

Because the drawing is one of the best cartoons Jimmy has seen of himself, he is now using it as his identifier on social media sites Twitter and Facebook.
