    This Week's Cartoon

    We may be the only chess website in the UK to employ a resident cartoonist, Dee Jay, who used to be an art teacher in his youth. The cartoons, in black ink and watercolour, combine thoughts on the noble game with local interest. Click on the image to enlarge and here for the cartoon archive. The victims of any satirical cartoon are welcome to request the original drawing on art paper.
