A salute to The 62
Andy Donato, a Scarborough-born 1955 Danforth Technical School grad, has been entertaining the masses with his award-winning and often controversial editorial cartoons for more than four decades. The former Eaton's layout artist's first print media cartoon was published in the Telegram in 1968. Now, a day without a Donato cartoon in the Sun is a cloudy day. Freelancing since 1996, Andy, the architect of the Toronto Sun's original iconic logo and design, devotes much of his non-Sun time to golf, landscape paintings and art shows. Dianne Jackson, his wife and former Sun colleague, is also an artist. Andy's best-of books, published from 1974 to 1993 and featuring many of Canada's politicians and prime ministers, were sellouts. Here's to a 40th anniversary book with his all-time favourites.
