ACEC gathering in Montreal

This past weekend I was in Montreal for the annual convention of the Association of Canadian Editorial Cartoonists. Fisher is seldom political and I'm not much of a joiner, but I couldn't resist the invitation to join this year and I'm glad I didn't... resist. (Fisher has been keeping company with political cartoons in several editions of Portfoolio, the annual anthology of, naturally, political cartoons. Here's an example of about how political my strip gets:)

Anyhow I had a blast in Montreal and must credit the organizers (primarily Terry Mosher — pen name "Aislin"— and his wife, Mary) for doing a great job. Terry is pictured below at right, holding the bust of himself created by Christian Daigle — pen name "Fleg", who is standing beside him. There is an exhibition of cartoons (Fisher included) at the McCord Museum in Montreal, and that will be up all summer.

  1. Really miss your strip in the Globe..... I did write to them and complain, saying you were a Canadian strip that had irony and humour that was worth keeping! But, to no avail, apparently! I didn't even get an acknowledgment! I am guessing that the paper is struggling, my husband observes that the paper isn't as good as it used to be. We live in difficult times! I wish you well with your strip and your artistic endeavours, whatever they may be! Cheers
