Cartoon Dave’s real name is Kevin Monkeypants.

He was born eleven years ago in an abandoned caravan a few kilometers to the left of Antarctica.

He has a sister called Blister-face, owns fourteen dolphins and was once the president of the “‘Justin Bieber for Miss America” club.

Dave is a professional giraffe wrestler, can bend spoons with his mind and loves to eat jelly babies.

Even the white ones.


Oh, and the photos below… you should print them out and wallpaper your room with them.

(PS. there may be some actual slightly more true info about Dave if you scroll down….)

Dave ‘Cartoon Dave’ Hackett has taught cartooning to over 150,000 children in schools, libraries, literature festivals and in newspapers and magazines across the country.

Spanning three decades, Dave has been cartooning on TV shows airing all over the world, and can currently be seen scribbling each week on Channel Eleven’s Toasted TV .

He is the author of seven how-to cartooning books, 2 picture books and six novels, including the hilarious series ‘UFO – Unavoidable Family Outing’.

His first Young Adult novel ‘The Summer of Kicks’ was released in August 2014, while his latest cartooning book ‘Gross Cartooning’ has been impressing children and offending parents since its release in September 2014. In August 2015, he’llalso release a new picture book (but it’s a little bit secret-squirrel at the moment, so can’t say any more).

Dave owns a small, prickle-infested dog called ‘Sweetie’, was once a TV game-show champion, and one day hopes to be short enough to be mistaken for Grant Denyer.
