At the time, Dickens was still in his early thirties and was in a bit of an early career slump. His previous novel, Martin Chuzzlewit , had not been the success to which Dickens had become accustomed. Dickens needed a hit. With this in mind, he knew the choice of illustrator would be a key factor in its popularity. It was little surprise that he turned to Leech. Born in , John Leech was already being called a genius at an early age. It was with the new publication, Punch magazine, that he found his spiritual home.

Launched in , the magazine quickly shook off pretensions to radicalism and found its niche in a more respectable form. Leech became a significant figure in Victorian society and culture, in some ways embodying the recent shift in taste in caricatures and journalism in general. The previous generation of visual satirists, personified by James Gillray, delighted in grotesque, scurrilous and often scatological illustrations, which even today can shock in the ferocity of their attacks on public figures.

That is not to say his work was toothless — far from it — but his targets were less likely to be individuals and more likely to be issues such as poverty. It was probably this element of his work that attracted Dickens.

In — the very same year that Dickens published his Christmas classic — an exhibition of frescos was being held at Westminster, something that Punch thought inappropriate when many who were living in the same district were starving. Leech, then just 25, drew Substance and Shadow under the heading Cartoon No. It is a striking image, juxtaposing the grand setting of Westminster Hall with the dishevelled poor looking forlornly on. Soon, after all, the illustrations in Punch were being called cartoons, and their artists cartoonists.

Leech went on to further success and immense popularity. More than 20 years after his death at just 47 in , a collection of his works, Sketches of Life and Character , sold , copies.
