"Fish Bait" Gag Cartoon in Reader's Digest Canada Magazine (June 2010)

Reader's Digest Canada Magazine - June 2010 CoverThe June 2010 issue of Reader's Digest Canada Magazine is now available at bookstores and newsstands, sporting a dapper Leonardo DiCaprio on the cover.

This month, one of my gag cartoons is published in the As Kids See It department on Page 74. Special thanks to the editors at Reader's Digest Canada!

My gag cartoon is entitled "Fish Bait" and is dedicated to all you kids out there who have a good ol' fishing story about the "one that got away!" This particular cartoon was inspired by my fond memories of warm summer mornings, days and evenings spent fishing with my dad, grandpa, and good friends out of everything from Lake Ontario to Lake Muskoka.

As you can see in the following cartoon, fishing can be extremely fun, but also hazardous. For, as Forest Gump would say, "You never know what you're gonna get!"

My fondest fishing memories are the ones that will still make us laugh for years to come. On one particular evening, my grandpa caught a seagull and an eel before calling it quits. And during an overnight stay at Boy Scout camp, I --*ahem*-- vaguely remember snagging my hook on a friend's finger mid-cast ... (sorry, Mark!) ... This one's for you!!

Stay TOONed!
