Brian Gable, editorial cartoonistBrian Gable was born in 1949 in Saskatoon. The desire to draw cartoons began when he was a preschooler, well before he studied fine art at the University of Saskatchewan, where his first ‘real’ editorial cartoons were published in the student newspaper, the Sheaf. After studying education at the University of Toronto, he taught art at Brockville, Ontario, where he freelanced as a cartoonist for the Brockville Recorder and Times in 1977. Subsequently he became full-time editorial cartoonist for the Regina Leader-Post in 1980 and later editorial cartoonist for the Globe and Mail in 1987. He won National Newspaper Awards for his work in 1986,1995, 2001 and 2005. He is also the illustrator for the children’s book series, Words Are Categorical, published by Lerner Publishing Group.
