Yardley Jones

Yardley Jones was the first Toronto Sun cartoonist to win an NNA, picking up the 1971 award for editorial cartooning/caricature.

He squeezed in an NNA between the 1970 and 1972 wins by the Toronto Star's six-time winner Duncan McPherson.

Despite four decades of brilliant cartoons, Andy Donato won his only NNA in 1976.

Yardley's first win for the Toronto Sun came to mind while reading an Edmonton Journal article about him and his new Edmonton show.  

The Journal story says The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, a retrospective of personalities, royalty and politicians, opened July 7 at St. Albert's Art Beat gallery.
