From his first celebrity cartoon presented to Sophia Loren at the age of just 17 to his weekly live cartoons beamed nationally on Hey Hey It's Saturday, Andrew Fyfe has entertained Australian audiences with his quick wit rendered with but a few strokes of his pen.
As the youngest editorial cartoonist in the country, Andrew started his television career as an on-air cartoonist for Hey Hey It's Saturday in ‘85. His unique take and spontaneous send-ups pioneered cartoons as live comment on television for over 14 years.
Celebrities like Samuel L Jackson and Tony Bennet were all fodder for Andrew's cartoons. Legendary guitarist, Stevie Ray Vaughn came backstage to request a special portrait, while Leslie Neilsen joked that he'd get him back one day!
Andrew's satirical humour also became part of Nine's The Footy Show. It was here that Andrew's art form evolved to animated cartoons sending up the news of the day. Football identities like John Elliot became regular characters in Andrew's segments, with some, like Eddie McGuire, even adding their own voice.
Over the years Andrew's work has been published in: Mad magazine, T.V Week, The Herald Sun, The Sunday Telegraph, Mx and Truth.
Andrew has also appeared as a speaker and cartoonist for many corporate clients including ANZ Bank, Toshiba, Morgan and Banks and The Age.
He has featured in advertising campaigns for Cadburys, Pilot Pens and Schweppes.
Andrew is currently working on other television projects where his bright, fertile mind can continue to create a world that brings a wry grin.
Client Comments for Andrew Fyfe
Andrew Fyfe travels from AustraliaAustralia
- Andrew was great. Guests arrived early and he was happy to start earlier and was also happy to do a few more after he had finished. He mingled well with the crowd and also did a bigger picture for our CEO up the front to compliment my speech.
