About the Author

Curtis Jobling

Curtis Jobling is an illustrator and animator, among other artistic functions, born in Blackpool, England but presently resident in Thirsk.

Jobling's academic achievements seemed meagre on his exit from school, but that did not stop him being accepted at the Cleveland College of Art & Design, Middlesbrough, for a HND in Illustration - which he studied from 1992 to 1994. A fruitful work experience placement in the puppet and prop-making department on Aardman Animations' Academy Award-winning Wallace and Gromit production A Close Shave landed Jobling a role as puppet painter on Tim Burton's Mars Attacks!

But Jobling's most universal acclaim was born out of his role in the making of childen's TV hit, Bob The Builder, on which he is production designer, the hand behind all of that programme's inimitable characters and sets. As an author and illustrator of children's books, his most (in)famous character can quite easily be recognised as Frankenstein's Cat, the muddled up feline and soon to be star of his own animated show.
