Oliver Hayes

Cartoonist, Illustrator & Designer


About Me

I am a cartoonist, writer and illustrator from Lyme Regis, Dorset, currently living and working from Sheffield, where I achieved a first class degree in English Literature in 2014.

I have worked on a wide variety of projects including writing and drawing puzzle books and activity sheets, designing vibrant graphics for companies, illustrating a children's book, and designing t-shirt decals.

In 2015 I wrote, drew and self-published the 8-page full-colour kids' comic LymeZone, set in my hometown of Lyme Regis, and in 2016, I crowdfunded a 16-page second issue through Kickstarter.

I also draw the weekly webcomic Bad Pudding at badpudding.com.

Style and Strengths

I specialise in designing kids' puzzles and activities, and also writing and drawing comics. I have a bold, colourful and classically cartoonish style which lends itself nicely to children's illustration, as well as to punky graphics, logos, t-shirt decals, posters, skateboards and cartoon mascots.
