The Cat and the Fiddle is a webcomic which first came into conceptual existence on cold English benches in the town of Lewes, East Sussex, sometime in the winter of 2007.

Kieran then drew some little pencil drawings that were more in the spirit of Glenn Baxter.

The actual comic did not materialise until after Jessica finished her time in Japan and her illustration job for our friend, Mr. Luke Temple, who writes books for children and makes them laugh and cry… Which meant both Kieran and Jessica, who had been 17 and 18 in 2007, were no longer legitimatly teenaged, although in their hearts they will always remain children.

When the comic is not the thing being produced, Kieran is constantly making music, and Jessica joins in with our wonderful friend, Danny Dourado ‘The Hat’ to form the YouTube VideoSong band ‘CatHatFiddle’ or, ‘The Cat, The Hat and The Fiddle’ – a name that has its origins in the name of this comic, even if it appears to have come before.

Needless to say, Kieran’s original little comics turned out to be nothing like the end product, but may appear as a bonus feature sometime in the future if any interest is shown.


The Authors



Jessica draws this comic. She is half Japanese and half English.

In her head she is a freelance illustrator, but she’s actually a student most of the time.

She studies Shakespeare and reads Shakespeare philosophically, because since she started to read Philosophy aged 16, she hasn’t been able to get away from it.

Jessica also makes noises on the violin and creates music with CatHatFiddle, a YouTube band formed around friends and friends who are housemates.



Kieran does not draw this comic. He occasionally adds jokes and proofreads.

At most hours of the day he can be found playing the violin, and generally being a musician.

Kieran is therefore the chief musical brainpower behind CatHatFiddle, and without him nobody would know what to do.

He is also a musician in this comic, and continues to be a consistent sort of person.
