John Tenniel

Sir John Tenniel (February 28, 1820 February 25, 1914) was a major English illustrator and political cartoonist who had a minor role in illustrating Dickens.

Largely was self taught as a catoonist and illustrator. His career took off when he was chosen to replace John Leech as Punch magazine's chief political cartoonist. Over the next 50 years, Tenniel's drawings and cartoons documented the rapid and wide ranging changes affecting Victorian England. As a cartoonist and political satirist, Tenniel crfeated thousands of illustrations which captured the mood and events of Victorian and Edwardian England, but also helped to shape public opinion on the controversial issues of the day. He was knighted by Queen Victoria for his artistic achievements, the first time that an illustrator has been so honoured.

In addition to his regular contributions to Punch magazine, Tenniel illustrated many notable books, including Alice in Wonderland and its sequels. Tenniel's association with Dickens was limited to providing some illustrations for Dickens' The Haunted Man. His frontpiece illustration is notable for depicting scenes representing good and evil.
