About Arty

Hi. Even though this blog is in my mum’s name, it’s mine really.  All the art and words are mine.

I am nine years old and I live in Melbourne with my mum, my dad, my brother, my dog Dexter and five chickens.

Some of my favourite things to do are: reading books, drawing pictures, playing with Dexter and taking him for walks, playing with LEGO (especially Star Wars LEGO), dreaming about making a model railway one day, going to the beach, admiring forests and playing with my friends. I also like old things.

My favourite colours are yellow, bright purple, turquoise and brown.

My favourite chicken is Emily who is a Pekin Bantam. She is yellow.

My favourite books are the ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ series by Cressida Cowell.

My favourite films are the Studio Gibli films, especially ‘My Neighbour Totoro’.

My favourite kinds of dogs are Staffies, Jack Russell Terriers, Greyhounds and Whippets.

A note from Mum

Arty was born in 2003. So he was nine years old when he began the blog. Now he is eleven. Apologies for any advertisements that appear at the bottom of the blog. They come with the free WordPress blog and we don’t get to choose what goes there. 



  1. I am really very, very impressed Arthur. Your stories and drawings just keep getting better and better. I am looking forward to opening my emails to view the latest episode [when you have time to do them].

    • Thank you for using your time to go to all the trouble to make a comment for my blog. I appreciate the kind message you wrote for me.
      I am definitely going to make more Bert and Dim-Wit comics. In fact, i’m doing one right now!

  2. Hi Arty,
    I was so excited tonight to read your comic strips about Bert and Dim Wit IJust loved them and I think that dog like Mannie got his just deserts for being so nasty. I think he must have a very sore head. I will be waiting to see some more soon. I sent the website over to Audrey who is about Hugo’s age and lives in Switzerland, as I thought she might like your cartoons too. Perhaps she will write a comment.
    Thanks Arthur for sharing Joan Spittle Grannie

  3. I certainly do like your work Arthur and will look forward to seeing many more.I think you made a mistake in your age. I think the age is more likely to be 19 rathetr than 9. Very well done inded

  4. I love your creations and think you are awesome! I will be following along to see what you are up to. I have a blog of kids’ projects etc that has a little art gallery too. If you would like to post one of your amazing works, let me know and it will stay in the gallery as long as you like, and also be posted on pinterest. I would, of course, link to your site here.
    Take great care and keep up the great creative work!
