David Firth (born January 23 1983 in Doncaster, England) is a university animation student and animator of Flash animations and various short videos. Much of his work is humorous, highly abstract and mostly deals with mental illness, nightmare imagery and surrealism. Much of his drawing style resembles Don Hertzfeldt's: thin, stick-like characters with large, wide-set eyes and dark circles underneath them. Firth's most notable works are currently Salad Fingers, Burnt Face Man and Devvo; his work first became noticed when the second episode of Salad Fingers was featured on the front page of Newgrounds on July 16, 2004.

Known for participating in a bicycle competition in which he placed third. It is also widely discussed that he had some sort of romantic entanglement with a foreign mail-order bride, though this was apparently due to a dare made by his friends.Template:Fact

He is a keen ten pin bowler and is known, in the Leeds area, as David 'The sugar' Firth. He was part of the semi-pro team that came very close to winning the Leeds Metropolitan cup in 2006
