Hello! I’m Andy Fanton, writer and cartoonist, but probably best known to you as the guy from the ‘about’ page on that website you once visited by mistake.

I’ve wanted to write and draw ever since I was knee-high to a grasshopper. So, when I left home and bid my grasshopper family farewell, I set off to find fame and fortune.

Instead, I became a writer and cartoonist.

Since then, I’ve worked on (trying to!) develop an animated series with Cosgrove Hall Films, written and/or drawn comics for The Beano, Dandy, Viz, and Private Eye,  and even written comedy sketches for BBC Radio, plus quite literally more besides. As well as my professional gigs, I’ve also created webcomics (The Carrotty Kid), written webfiction under the guise of Lord Likely (soon to be a book too) and run the Youtube gaming channel, Ruddy Player One. WHEW!

I love my work – where else can you get paid to write jokes about farting? – and I love creating, and feel very lucky to be doing this. If you want to hire me for any cartoony or writery work, then get in touch HERE. Otherwise, feel free to browse through this site and have a look at what I do. I hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed looking at it after I’d finished it after looking at it for quite a while. Or something.
