George Cruikshank (27 September 1792 - 1 February 1878), son of the Scottish painter and caricaturist Isaac Cruikshank, was a caricaturist and book illustrator. His 60-year career began with political prints that attacked the royal family and leading politicians (in 1820 he received a royal bribe of ?100 for a pledge "not to caricature His Majesty (George III of the United Kingdom) in any immoral situation.") He went on to create social caricatures of British life for popular publications such as The Comic Almanack (1835-1853) and Omnibus (1842). Later in his career, his book illustrations for Charles Dickens and many other authors reached an international audience.
