Our fifth cartoonist has a following of just 4.2K on Twitter, but don’t let the number fool you. Brown produces content for the Independent in London and is loved for his work.
He is one of the few cartoonists who cover all sorts of international issues and are honest about their feelings. He was under fire in 2003 for drawing a cartoon of the former Israeli PM, Ariel Sharon, as a monster eating Palestinian children.
His cartoons are provoking and force you to think deep about how politics affects everything around us.
