According to Simon Houfe, Sullivan, the elder brother of the great Edmund J. Sullivan, worked as “the resident illustrator” at Fun for 24 years and “favoured the strip- story cartoon and created a popular character, ‘the British working man’ who features in issue after issue of his magazines. The main character is conceived in traditional cartoon idiom of small body and large head but is always very well drawn” (321). — George P. Landow
