David Firth is a UK animator, cartoonist, writer, and musician known mostly for making the horror-based series Salad Fingers. He started in Flash and gained prominence on Newgrounds, but since Flash has made a general decline in widespread use, David has transitioned to using Adobe After Effects for his works.
Firth's work is often filled with darker imagery and it explores topics of a disturbing or surreal nature, such as behaviour reminiscent of mental illness. Some can be described as Dark Humour or Psychological Horror.
He has had his work distributed by the BBC on television and once was hired to do commission work for their network.
Firth directed the music video for the Flying Lotus song "Ready Err Not", which premiered on Adult Swim on Halloween night 2014.
