Fluffy 1984, Simone Lia
Simone Lia began painting and drawing in her Dad’s tool shed at the age of 13. After studying at the University of Brighton she went on to write and illustrate books for children.
She became friends with Tom Gauld at the RCA and they began self-publishing comics as Cabanon Press. Since then Simone has set up an art studio in an old pub, written a couple of graphic novels, ‘Fluffy‘ (a story of a bunny in denial) ‘Please God, Find Me A Husband!‘ (Jonathan Cape) had sausages and other food related characters starring in their own strips in a number of publications including The Independent on Sunday and The Guardian and has had her artwork hanging on the walls of The Tate Britain.
Simone has a weekly comic strip called ‘Things That I’ve Learned’ in The Observer. She’s just written her first novel for children (title to be confirmed) that will be published by Walker Books in 2016 and she is also working on her third graphic novel, that will be a sequel to Fluffy. She is the voice of the central character Fluffy Pulcino, who is a teenager and regularly uploads ‘photographs’ onto his instagram account.
