Since deciding to leave the army in 1985, Bryn Parry has been cartooning full time. Despite no formal training together with wife Emma they set up a small picture framing business in Wiltshire and he began to obtain caricature commissions. The first one was from his former Regiment but it was not long before he had work from Lloyds of London and had produced a cartoon of David Gower, then the captain of the England cricket team.
In 1989 they came up with the idea of the cartoon frame, a high quality walnut frame with cartoons printed on the mount and for the next ten years they developed the range of products. Their frames and clocks were sold through shops all over the world from Hong Kong to California and they even supplied the White House in 1993.
Towards the end of the Nineties they changed the emphasis of the business from frames to other products with more 'cartoony' designs and in 2000 Bryn Parry’s first book was published and became a best selling country sports book. Since then seven more books and have followed and an ever expanding range of fantastic gifts.
