Kartoon Faktory came to life when founder Cameron McPhail and illustrator Oli Nightingale met when Oli was working in a call centre while saving up to go travelling, where in-between calls he would spend his time doodling away on pads, littering the office with his comic book creations. Cameron, who was a director at the same company, asked who was drawing them and the rest, as they say, is history!They have since produced thousands of cartoons together that have regularly been published in newspapers and magazines including Private Eye, the Oldie, Jersey Evening Post and Bailiwick Express. Additionally, the duo has published several cartoon-based books, as well as the tongue-in-cheek Nationality Test book series and Oli also illustrates Cameron’s best-selling Magpies and Mischief – The Seamus Stories children’s book.
Collectively the pair aim to redefine the concept of the satirical cartoon by producing a well-designed piece of humorous art; every cartoon has become a uniquely, comical product in its own right.
