Zoom Rockman

Zoom Rockman (born in 2000) is a Political Cartoonist and Puppet Maker whose comic strip, Skanky Pigeon first appeared in the Beano when he was 12 years old.

Age 16, he became the youngest cartoonist in Private Eye Magazine history and has since become a regular contributor. He is also Editorial Cartoonist for The JC.

Described as “A rising star with edgy wit and genuine cultural awareness well beyond his years.” The Evening Standard named Zoom as one of the most influential Londoners under 25.

His award winning comic, ‘The Zoom!’ has attracted wide critical acclaim for its funny and irreverent critique of urban life and developed a cult following. London stockists now include Tate Modern and Somerset House.

Zoom’s Art humours and heroes the everyday grime and energy of London and has become increasingly collectible. His first solo exhibition at The Hospital Club, Covent Garden was a sell-out event.

Zoom is Young Ambassador for the world’s biggest arts charity, The Big Draw. He is passionate about promoting the importance of creativity in all school subjects and has been invited to speak about this at the House of Commons, Advertising Industry events and Art galleries across the UK.

Zoom is ‘Artist in Residence’ at ‘Simpsons in The Strand’ Restaurant in London.

He recently illustrated the Political Book of The Year 2020, ‘The Prime Ministers’ published by Hodder UK.

He is a member of ‘The Professional Cartoonists' Association’ and ‘The British Cartoonist Association’ and a patron for The Lakes International Comic Arts Festival in Kendal.

Zoom is studying Graphic Design at Central Saint Martins, London.
