One of Britain's most accomplished cartoonists stopped by Caspari on the downtown mall.

Annie Tempest brought her collection of characters with her while she visits the U.S. The store is hosting the illustrator since Caspari's books, puzzles, and prints feature Tempest's cartoons and unmistakable humor.

"I draw on my own experience of having grown up in a crumbling English stately home in what should have been very grand, but wasn't," Tempest said.

Tempest has been an award-winning cartoonist for over 18 years.
