Congratulations to regular contributors to the Pavement Paul Atherton and Mike Stokoe for having their work featured in the Cartoon Museum’s current exhibition, This Exhibition is a Work Event. The exhibition runs until April 2023 and features memorable cartoons from a wide range of cartoonists printed during Boris Johnson’s tenure as Prime Minister. Paul and Mike’s collaborative cartoon titled Best of Times… Worst of Times… – depicting real-life events affecting Paul and drawn in humorous detail by Mike – will also enter the museum’s permanent collection.

The cartoon follows Paul as he experiences homelessness during the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic. Best of Times… Worst of Times… was first published in issues 132 and 133 of the Pavement.
