Heath Robinson was an English cartoonist and illustrator who created humorous drawings of eccentric machines. His work has been described as a combination of the absurd and the ingenious, often featuring complex contraptions that perform simple tasks in bizarre ways. He was born in London in 1872 and is best known for his cartoons depicting elaborate machines designed to perform mundane tasks, such as a machine for making toast or a machine for peeling potatoes. Robinson's cartoons were first published in Punch magazine in 1902, where he worked until his death in 1945. His work also appeared regularly in The Sketch, The Bystander and other publications throughout his career. He also illustrated books by authors such as P G Wodehouse, A A Milne and J M Barrie. Robinson's cartoons are characterized by their whimsical nature; they often feature strange contraptions with multiple moving parts that are designed to accomplish some mundane task with comically inefficient results. Many of these inventions have become iconic images associated with British humour, such as the "Heath Robinson washing machine" which consists of a series of pulleys, wheels and levers connected to a washing line outside the window. The term "Heath Robinson" has become part of everyday language; it is used to describe any overly complicated solution to a problem or any makeshift device cobbled together from whatever materials are available at hand - much like one of Robinson's own inventions, and is also used more generally to describe any situation which appears chaotic but actually works perfectly well - again much like one of Robinson's creations. Robinson's work continues to be popular today; his illustrations have been featured on postage stamps issued by Royal Mail since 1971 and there have been several exhibitions dedicated solely to him over the years. His influence can still be seen today; many modern cartoonists cite him as an inspiration while engineers continue to be inspired by his inventive designs.
