Drawn from Experience

Back in 1967, while working as a bus driver for Canadian Coachways, I did a regular run between Prince Rupert and Prince George, B.C., and was a contributing editor from my division to the company’s newsletter. In my efforts to provide an interesting read and a chuckle or two, I drew and submitted cartoons for several of the issues. I received a number of favourable comments on my artistic ability.

I have been retired for a number of years now, but I still have a flair for the arts as a sketch artist for my own enjoyment. Hopefully these cartoons bring a smile to the faces of Our Canada readers as well. Check out more below!
