John Fardell (born 1967) is an English cartoonist, and author and illustrator of children's books.
Fardell has been a regular contributor to the adult comic Viz, and has created and drawn two of the most popular and long-running strips, The Modern Parents and The Critics, and also Ferdinand the Foodie and Desert Island Teacher.
