Fardell has been a regular contributor to the adult comic Viz, and has created and drawn two of the most popular and long-running strips, The Modern Parents and The Critics, and also Ferdinand the Foodie and Desert Island Teacher. His work for Viz often satirises various types of self-important or self-righteous middle-class people. His strip The Modern Parents, for example, portrays the way a mother and father insist on bringing up their young sons by following a doctrine they term "ethical awareness", much to the children's detriment.
Fardell is also an author and illustrator of children's books. To date he has produced three children's adventure novels: The Seven Professors of the Far North, published in 2004, The Flight of the Silver Turtle, published in 2006, and The Secret of the Black Moon Moth, published in 2009 – and three children's picture books: Manfred the Baddie, published 2008., Jeremiah Jellyfish Flies High, published 2010, and The Day Louis Got Eaten, published 2011.
