Anthony Jenkins’ caricatures and cartoons of the famous and infamous appeared in The Globe and Mail for nearly 40 years. After moving to Mono in 2012, he began writing and illustrating for this magazine and spending more time on his fine art, including the 18 works in his “Leisure” series. While the subject matter was handy – his wife, his daughters, dog Maggie and himself – he insists his family’s apparent indolence is fiction: “It was tough to get them to lie still long enough to photograph!” He was recently awarded the Reed T. Cooper Bursary by Dufferin Arts Council to develop a series of portraits exploring a variety of media. His work can be seen occasionally at Dragonfly Arts on Broadway in Orangeville. jenkinsdraws.com
