“The art of cartooning isn’t the drawing, it’s the joke. And that’s the hardest part, coming up with gags day in, day out.” Chris Kemp
In 1995 at age 33 years Chris was President of the Toronto Cartoonists Society. For four years he had been a full time cartoonist after ditching his job as a freelance graphic artist. He supplemented his income as a cartoonist by selling gags to more established cartoonists working for prime publications like Playboy.
