Brothers Gene, Dan and David Day were a remarkable family of cartoonists based in Gananoque. They were amongst the pioneers of the Ontario revival. Until his untimely death, Gene was the leader of the group with Dan and David functioning more or less as assistants. After Gene’s death Dan carried on whereas David participated less and less. As can be seen below David never worked outside of the family group.
