January 7 - Lunch at The Globe with Anthony Jenkins

Anthony Jenkins is a new resident of Mono and has quickly become involved in our arts community. His work will soon appear in the windows of Dragonfly. It is through Joan Hope that he has agreed to speak to us at lunch. 

Anthony Jenkins has been an editorial cartoonist, caricaturist, illustrator, and sometime writer at The Globe and Mail for so many decades it is embarrassing; almost four, but who’s counting. He loves the human face and has never tired in finding interest, beauty, character and art in it. He catches a likeness elegantly or on (merited) occasions, cruelly, and always with attention to an interesting, dancing line. He has, at intervals over those decades, also traveled in 83 countries, on all continents save Antarctica, sketching and drawing in the streets, markets, mountains and savannahs, even when he is not being paid.
