The Globe and Mail’s editorial cartoonist BRIAN GABLE was born in Saskatoon, studied fine art at the University of Saskatchewan, then education at the University of Toronto. After teaching for a while, he freelanced as a cartoonist in Brockville and Regina, then became the editorial cartoonist for the Globe – Canada’s national and most prestigious newspaper – in 1987.
