“Working in both countries, I see a great deal of cartooning produced in both Canada and the States. I would have to say that the Canadian cartoonists have a definite edge when it comes to quality.” The Hecklers: 253.
Born 1947 in Vancouver.
In the 1960’s he contributed to Georgia Straight and other Vancouver publications. For three years he worked on fishing boats on the B.C. coast in order to raise enough money to open a commercial art studio with a friend in Vancouver in 1972.
Encouraged by Roy Peterson he began cartooning full time again in 1975, with his work appearing regularly in the Sun [Vancouver], Vancouver Magazine, Books in Canada and The Canadian Magazine. By 1977 he was also working regularly for the San Francisco Chronicle. With that paper he syndicated a feature called “Faces” which consisted of caricatures of well-known Canadian and American politicians.
