More about the author:
SIMON TOFIELD is an award-winning animator and cartoonist. He has had a lifelong interest in animals, beginning as a child, when his uncle gave him a plastic pond which quickly filled with wildlife. Simon was given his first cat when he was nine and now has four rescue cats, who are the mischievous inspiration for his work. He has been working as a 2D animator and designer for over fifteen years, and has worked on a diverse range of high-profile productions, including advertising campaigns for Marmite ‘Paddington Bear’ (DDB London) and Microsoft ‘Rugby’ (McCann Erickson London). As an animator, Simon developed his distinctive approach to character-based, observational comedy and developed an unusual technique by drawing on the digital tablet in a freehand way and creating the animation with a flowing, ‘straight-ahead’ approach which distinguishes the Simon’s Cat films from other animations.
