Bryn Parry, Cartoonist, Caricaturist, Illustrator, Sculptor, Author and Designer.


Bryn Parry CBE (1956–2023) was one of Britain’s best-known countryside cartoonists.

Bryn was the naughty schoolboy doodling in the margins of his textbooks. He drew cartoons while serving in the army and finally decided to turn his hobby into a living. His work will be instantly familiar to anyone with a passion for the countryside, shooting and badly behaved dogs.

His cartoons appeared in country magazines and he illustrated countless products with his witty, detailed and perceptive pictures. Bryn’s bestselling books are Mad Dogs and Englishmen, Shooting Types, Horses for Courses, Sex in the Country, 101 Shooting Excuses and, with his wife Emma, Home on the Range. In 2007, Bryn and Emma successfully co-founded the charity Help for Heroes, which they ran for nearly 10 years. Bryn's last six years were spent immersed in his latest passion - sculpture, during which he created a range of fabulous bronze animals.
