For more than forty years he had been a draughtsman for the comic magazine Punch, rising to the position of First Cartoonist in his final decade. To his many friends Sambourne was a natural humorist, a teller of comic tales, a lively and cheerful companion. He was a frequent guest of the rich and successful, but his origins were very different. Sambourne rose in the world through a blend of talent and hard work. He is remembered for his imaginative and stylized cartoons, often reproduced as illustrations to studies of the social and political mores of his time.
