Don Evans, portrait cartoonist extraordinaire
extracted from: Canadian Society of Editorial Cartoonists
Bickerstaff (aka Don Evans) has practiced the caricature trade in Canada for so long, his many admirers call him “a national treasure”. Collections of his work, produced over three decades, are housed in Canada’s National Archives and at the University of Calgary and the University of Toronto. His original drawings are also proudly displayed, framed and mounted, in dozens of private homes around the country.

Statement of Intent
I make every effort to credit the sources of information used in this blog and to obtain the permission and cooperation of all the works presented by living artists. I try, as much as possible to use works from public sources eg. national and provincial collections, of deceased artists. If for any reason, any artist disapproves of anything written about them or their work the artist is encouraged to request withdrawal of the content.
