"With his singular style of irreverent erudition, cartoonist Tom Gauld has emerged as an unparalleled visual satirist of the literary world." Brainpickings
"Cartoonist Tom Gaulds You re All Just Jealous of My Jetpack consists of single panels that explore the passage of time, absurdism, and most of the 7 Deadly Sins, all presented with a sense of graceful whimsy that makes his work such a delight to read." BoingBoing

Gauld bills his cartoons as cartoons for book lovers, and there is definitely a bookish cast to his work, and also often a British cast as well.
I enjoyed a recent interview, in particular this section where Gauld describes his techniques:
"All my work starts in my sketchbook where I can play around with an idea, trying things out in different ways and hopefully finding a simple, funny idea. Sometimes, it can take ages to find the right combination of words and images to convey an idea. My aim is for the text and image to be as minimal as possible, but for them to work together to make something bigger happen in the reader's mind. The way you lay things out on the page is a big part of making a good comic, so I spend time moving things around, in pencil sketches and on the computer, until I have a good composition. Then I'll use a lightbox to trace a final, ink version which I color in Photoshop."
