Donato’s 1980 Political Cartoons, 3.

“Like politicians, I have no politics of my own.”                                                      The Hecklers:235.

Born 1937 in Toronto (Scarborough).

In 1955, he graduated from Danforth Technical School and began working as a layout artist at Eaton’s. In 1959, he left Eaton’s to join a small art studio. A year later decided to freelance.

In 1961 he was hired by the Telegram [Toronto] as a graphic artist in the promotions department. In 1963, he worked on the redesign of the paper and transferred to the editorial department. In 1968, he became art director for one of the Telegram’s magazine inserts. Al Beaton staff cartoonist for the Telegram encouraged him to try cartooning. As a result Donato began filling in for Beaton when the latter was on holidays.

When the Telegram ceased operations Donato and several other members of the staff helped found the Toronto Sun. There he became art director and drew two cartoons a week. In 1974, Yardley Jones then resident cartoonist of the Toronto Sun moved to the Star [Montréal] and Donato became a full time cartoonist. He won a National Newspaper Award in 1976. In 1985/1986 he served as President of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists.

He took early retirement in 1997, but continued producing editorial cartoons as a freelancer.

As a hobby he paints landscapes and has done a number of limited edition prints.
