Personal Bio


Hello.
 
My name is Cathy Thorne.

I write and draw Everyday People, cartoons about women, and the people who love and annoy them.

I created my first cartoon in 1999, during my graduating year at The Art Centre in Toronto. I was 32-years-old at the time.

So you don't have to do the math, that makes me 52-years-old.

I practice yoga, drink green smoothies and try to live in the moment.

I've also been known to eat a large bag of BBQ chips in one sitting while watching sitcom reruns.

I live on a quiet street in Toronto with my family, who provide me with insights, challenges and laughter to inspire a lifetime's worth of cartoons.  
 

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do the people have no eyes?

I like to draw using as little lines as possible. I find that leaving out every facial feature other than the mouth gives the reader a larger opening to place themselves (or their friends, sister, mothers) into the cartoons.

Where do you get your inspiration from?

Everywhere!
I have a thought. I read something. A friend says something. I overhear a conversation.
There are ideas everywhere, and I grab the ones I like, and turn them into cartoons.

    Are all of the cartoons you?

    Yes.
    I mean, no.
    I mean, the ones that make me seem insightful, those are me.
    The ones that make me seem messed up, those are not me.
