Martin Honeysett (born 20 May 1943[1] in Hereford, England) is a cartoonist and illustrator.

After studying for a year at Croydon School of Art,[2] he worked briefly in a London animation studio, and then spent several years abroad both in New Zealand as a lumberjack and in Canada before returning to England to work as a bus-driver for London Transport.[2] He sold his first cartoon to the Daily Mirror in 1969 and has since contributed to Punch, Private Eye, Evening Standard, The Observer and many other magazines and newspapers.[2]

He has illustrated several books including Sue Townsend's The Queen and I[3] and Dick King-Smith's H.Prince, but is arguably best known for his illustrations in Ivor Cutler's poetry books Gruts, Fremsley and Life in a Scotch Sitting Room.
