"Fran is a delight to work with in bringing together cartoon images for use in business presentations. He is friendly and responsive, turning around requirements at a moments notice. I would not hesitate to recommend Fran." Tony Farnfield, Practice Leader, Trinity Horne.

Fran is an excellent cartoonist and has been great to work with on GP over the years. He has managed to find an amusing take on the many issues facing the NHS week in, week out. What’s more, he’s able to turn things around for us quickly and is completely reliable.
