bridge cartoons and caricature

Those who enjoy cartoons in non-bridge magazines may like to look at some of these:

from the British magazine "Punch"http://punch.photoshelter.com/search?I_DSC=bridge&I_SDATE%5BMM%5D=&I_SDATE%5BDD%5D=DD&I_SDATE%5BYYYY%5D=YYYY&I_EDATE%5BMM%5D=&I_EDATE%5BDD%5D=DD&I_EDATE%5BYYYY%5D=YYYY&I_CITY=&I_STATE=&I_COUNTRY_ISO=&I_ORIENTATION=&I_IS_RELEASED=&I_IS_PRELEASED=&_CB_I_PR=t&_CB_I_PU=t&_CB_I_RF=t&_CB_I_RM=t&I_SORT=RANK&I_DSC_AND=t&V_ID=&G_ID=&C_ID=&_ACT=search

(a few of them are non-card games)

Punch was published between 1841 and 2002. Wiki says: Historically, it was most influential in the 1840s and 1850s, when it helped to coin the term "cartoon" in its modern sense as a humorous illustration.

The Culbertson challenge matches resulted in a few long-ish strips:

It is quite unusual to have a private individual commission a caricature.  Alan Rickayzen produced one just recently. He managed this via crowdfunding project. More about the story here:

I'd be interested to hear of other commissioned works.  Maybe you have a favourite cartoon or perhaps something that also includes satire?
