My Story

Brett Cardwell (Cardy) grew up on a farm in Whittlesea, Victoria. As a kid he loved the Bugs Bunny Show, Mad Magazines and Footrot Flats. During the late 80’s while in Whittlesea College his cartoons appeared in several magazines and he illustrated his first book.

By the mid 90’s Brett had the opportunity to demonstrate he’s on the spot cartoon and storytelling skills while flying around outback schools, churches and community halls. This also led to overseas travel utilising the power of visual storytelling.



Soon after Cardy started “Cardytoons” and has worked for many years with kids groups, camps and public speaking and demonstrations at corporate events.

Operating as a local freelance artist since 1998, Cardytoons offers a complete range of creative services for individuals, businesses and companies – including Cartoons, Illustrations, Animation, Murals and Video Production.
