Peter Plant was born in Toronto, Canada, in 1952 and moved to London, England in 1972. For several years he worked as an ad agency copywriter and jingle writer while simultaneously drawing cartoons about life around him.
Besides many gag cartoons, Peter Plant produced five strips, each published either as books or in newspapers and magazines around the world: 'Flash Filstrup', about a dedicated "artist-exposeur", 'Maggie', about a ditzy girl who works in an advertising agency, 'The Commuters', about a pair of high-fliers who work in the city and 'Bogart', the adventures of a neighbourhood cat.
The latter is his best-known creation and has appeared for 20 years in Today, the Daily Mail and Sunday Times. In 2004 'Maurice and Earl' debuted in the Canadian national Globe and Mail. He now lives in Hampshire, in the south of England, with his family.
