Celia Allison is the creator of Cecily. She grew up in rural Canterbury, and attended Otago University. She then completed a Diploma in Visual Communication Design, in illustration and graphic design, at Wellington Polytechnic. In the late 1990s a cartoon about a single woman living alone began to take shape; by 2000 this hobby had gained enough attention to demand an audience of it's own. The cartoon character was, of course, Cecily, who was born from many hours at the drawing-board following a great many more hours spent talking, laughing and drinking with friends. Not that we are suggesting for one minute that Cecily is autobiographical.The bob hair cut, iconic glasses, the years spent as a single woman and enthusiasm for life are just coincidental, right?
