Welcome to Sox - alter-ego of Dave Lupton Cartoons

All you ever wanted(?) to know about Dave Lupton

Dave Lupton, aka Sox, Crippen and all-round fine cartoonist This is a short biog' to introduce Dave Lupton, cartoonist, writer and, let's face it, a damn fine looking fellow (and they say the camera never lies!)

Having played around the edges of professional cartooning for as long as he can remember (his mother always maintained that he'd grow out of it!) he eventually got down to some real work about 30 years ago.

All was going exceedingly well, with commissions for London Zoo (the creation of a cartoon spider called Webster used to great effect in their arachnophobia campaign), Greenpeace, Victim Support, and many one-off commissions for magazines, newspapers, etc., until fate decided to play a hand.

Finding himself at the sharp end of a motoring accident (not his fault he hastens to add; some stupid driver having recently got back to the UK from France forgot what side of the road she was meant to be on!), Dave found himself looking at the world from a wheelchair for several years.

Eventually finding his feet again (literally!) Dave once more ventured out into the wide world of mainstream cartooning and redeveloped his original alter ego "Sox". His work in this respect has been extremely varied and has involved producing cartoons for postcard manufacturers, producing training visuals for management consultancy firms, and travelling to the USA for a stint as cartoonist/training facilitator. Now residing in Spain, Dave is also the in-house cartoonist for The Olive Press newspaper based in the Alpujarra region of Southern Spain.

However, following his motoring accident Dave found himself surrounded by ideas for cartooning based upon Disability and Disability issues. It wasn't long before the alter ego Crippen emerged and the rest, as they say, is history. For more information about Dave�s work as "Crippen � Disabled cartoonist", please visit the Crippen web site.
