Norman Thelwell was born in Birkenhead, Cheshire, England in May 1923. His earliest surviving drawing is a pencil self portrait done at the age of 10. His first cartoon for Punch was published in 1952 and led to a publishing relationship which lasted for over 25 years. His first pony cartoon was published in 1953 and, by accident led to a lifetime association with the image of chubby children and a fat hairy pony. Read the full biography of Norman Thelwell and history of the Thelwell Ponies here....
The Wade Collectors Club has signed a new licence with the Thelwell Estate and for the first time we will reproduce the fantastic cartoon ponies and chubby children as Whimsies. Here we present the first of the proposed Whimsie range. Watch this space for further details of our new exciting collaboration with Thelwell.
