About Alex Hallatt

Alex Hallatt

After getting a degree in biochemistry and working seven years in the pharmaceutical industry, Alex Hallatt got her first newspaper cartoonist job in 1999. She worked for Brighton, UK’s daily newspaper for four years, creating a topical cartoon panel and a daily comic strip. In 2003, she emigrated from the UK to New Zealand. Arctic Circle was syndicated by King Features in 2007.

In 2008, Alex crossed the ditch to live in Melbourne, Australia and moved back to the UK in 2012 for a couple of years, before heading to the Basque Country (to learn Spanish. Basque is hard.).
