Normal Rockwell, move aside. It turns out there’s another famous artist named “Norman”… Norman Thelwell. Born in 1923, Thelwell was a prolific cartoonist. His scope was broad and his interests vast, but his best-known subjects are fat little horses with attitudes. So much so that they’re known as Thelwell Ponies.

Thelwell!! Norman Thelwell (1923-2004) English cartoonist well known for his humourous illustrations of ponies and horses. His first collection of cartoons, Angels on Horseback, was published in 1957. Known to many only as Thelwell, he found his true comic niche with Pony Club girls and their comic ponies, a subject for which he became best-known, and which led to a cartoon strip about such a pair, Penelope and Kipper.
