Victor Brown (b. Nuneaton, Warwickshire, 21 April 1900; d. Dublin, 16 August 1953) was an illustrator and, under the pseudonym Bee, a political cartoonist for the Irish Press. Born in England, the son of a British soldier, his family lived in Ireland for some time during his childhood, and he settled in Dublin in his twenties. He illustrated books, magazines, and broadsides edited by his friend F. R. Higgins and W. B. Yeats. He also designed sets for the theatre, and designed a postage stamp commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Easter Rising in 1941.
