JONES John Yardley

Born 1930, in Liverpool, England, he grew up in Wales.

He became a boxer at age 14 years and fought 150 professional fights over nine years. Over this time he

studied to be a draftsman and freelanced cartoons to various English publications.

He and his wife Mary immigrated to Alberta Canada in 1957. He tried a variety of jobs while freelancing cartoons to the Herald [Calgary] and the Journal [Edmonton]. However, it was working for The Roughneck, that he feels he established his credentials as an editorial cartoonist.

In 1962, he was hired as the Journal’s first staff editorial cartoonist and worked there for five years. He

moved east and worked for the Toronto Telegram for six years until it ceased operations October 1971. He then worked for the Star [Montréal] for eight years until it ceased publishing Sept. 25, 1979.. He won a National Newspaper Award in 1971. He returned to Alberta in 1981 and drew editorial cartoons for both the Journal [Edmonton] and the Edmonton Sun. In addition, he began doing covers for Alberta Report, 19 Sept. 1983. He also taught cartooning on ACCESS Network, the Alberta educational television channel. This series was later broadcast on TV Ontario.

He retired and has become well known as a watercolorist.
