Kyd' is a pseudonym for Joseph Clayton Clarke. Clarke had many occupations during his career. He was a designer of cigarette cards, postcards and Fore-edge painter principally specialising in Dickens Characters from 1912. He worked for 'Punch' for only one day and as a free lance artist until 1900. Joseph Clarke was apparently a profligate and eccentric man. A trait common amongst artists. He died in Hammersmith 1937. Clarke's cartoon caricatures are full of humour and personality. He captures the character's expressions and 'way of life' expertly. This enables one to picture the characters that Charles Dickens portrayed more fully.
