“His cartoons about racial or social discrimination have all the subtlety of a mugging. Middle-class cartoonists dealing with the same subjects often take refuge in heavy symbolism. Uluschak uses a bare-fisted approach inspired by a gut reaction rather than a political or moral position …” Desbarates Peter & Mosher Terry, The Hecklers, 182.
He was born 1943 near Prosperity Alberta where his parents settled on a homestead after imigrating from Poland. The family moved into a tough immigrant’s district in Edmonton when he was 10 years old.
He had no formal art training after high school, but began freelancing in the Edmonton area doing illustrations and working for a trade magazine publisher. Some of his first cartoons appeared in The Roughneck. In 1968, he replaced Yardley Jones as editorial cartoonist at the Journal [Edmonton] when the latter left for Toronto.
He won National Newspaper Awards for 1969 and 1971. He also won the Basil Dean Memorial Award for Outstanding Contributions To Journalism. His work has appeared in exhibitions in Greece, Bulgaria, Japan, Poland, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Italy and Germany.
His work was syndicated to more than a hundred newspapers and magazines including Punch, Time, U.S. News And World Report, and The National Review.
