Annie Tempest is one of the top cartoonists working in the UK. This was recognized in 2009 with the Cartoon Art Trust awarding her the Pont Prize for the portrayal of the British Character. Annie’s cartoon career began in 1985 with the success of her first book, How Green Are Your Wellies? This led to a regular cartoon, ‘Westenders’ in the Daily Express. Soon after, she joined the Daily Mail with the ‘Yuppies’ cartoon strip which ran for more than seven years and for which, in 1989, she was awarded ‘Strip Cartoonist of the Year’. Since 1993 Annie Tempest has been charting the life of Daffy and Dicky Tottering in Tottering-by-Gently – the phenomenally successful weekly strip cartoon in Country Life.
