His early works often dealt with military scenes, but from about 1820 on he focused on satire. Some of his works were published under the pseudonym "Paul Pry". Heath helped found an early caricature magazines, The Glasgow Looking Glass (renamed to The Northern Looking Glass after five issues). Heath created a numbered series of political Caricatures between 1830 – 1834 for Mc'Leans Monthly."     - via Wikipedia
