Denmark, in 1967. Raised in the wild woods of Ireland
with brother Enda, he now lives and works in London's

He's made his living as a cartoonist and illustrator since age
nineteen, working for papers in Ireland, Denmark and

As well as cartooning and
illustration, Kellie has also done film and theatre
