Ingram Pinn was born in Bristol in 1950, and studied Fine Art at Camberwell School of Art before working as an art teacher and graphic designer at London University. Pinn became a regular contributor to The Times, The Sunday Times, The Observer and New Scientist, and in 1984 he began working for the Financial Times, illustrating articles on the comment page twice a week, and contributing his own topical comment every Saturday. “The tradition started with me,” says Pinn of his Financial Times cartoons, “I hope it doesn’t die with me.”
A collection of Pinn's drawings about science, with text by Timothy Ferris, was published in 1993 as The Universe and Eye.
