Barney Farmer is a writer, raconteur, pessimist, sceptic and aspirant public scourge from the North of England. He has worked with the artist Lee Healey for longer than either man cares to recall, and since 2002 they have graced the pages of iconic UK adult comic Viz with strips including Drunken Bakers, The Male Online, Hen Cabin and much, much more.
Farmer's lyrical and 'frequently repulsive' debut novel Drunken Baker was quietly published in April 2018 to various throwaway critical acclaim, and he anticipates a similar fate, at best, will befall his second, Coketown, when it appears some time in 2019.
He uses a yellow Bic biro for most things.
Professional UK freelance cartoonist and illustrator with a career spanning over two decades. Work has been published in both the UK and abroad.
Clients include Viz, Private Eye, GQ, Maxim, Loaded, Kerrang!, GolfPunk, The Dandy, Alan Moore's Dodgem Logic, BBC Books, CBBC, Quitting Hollywood, Cadbury's, BP, British Gas, and many more.
