Grooch

Cartoonist and satirist

GROOCH is a generation"X", middle class, lover of satire, hyperbole, while ironically trying to keep life real. I AM Canadian (I do NOT live in an IGLOO!) I hail originally from Montreal Quebec (25 years), but now as a married father of 6 awesome children call Lethbridge Alberta home. I was raised a child of Star Wars, spending summers outside, and on big wheels, collecting comic books, Oliver North, and three's company. I've been witness to the invention of microwaves, computers and video games, which in turn murdered stove top dinners, typewriters, and snakes and ladders. But now where does Cartooning factor into all this? My answer is this; cartoons in the generation I was raised in were a much more revered thing. The Holy Saturday morning was the only day of the week that a person could watch them and I myself would watch until my eyes watered. Comic strips in the paper, the editorial cartoon, Garfield, Marvel, and Mad Magazine were all the daily staples of my continued addiction. I have a Fine arts degree and a love for art that has yet to pay much more than a Mc Donald’s meal. I just love making fun and funny art, providing a laugh to those in need of clarity and elevating the pressure of the day-to-day grind. There are a hand full of individuals that make a living drawing Editorial Cartoons and I thank them all for giving me an appreciation and love for being able to laugh in the rain.

Well thanks allot Don, one step forward and three steps back.. I've had to clean allot of dishes this week for attempting to explain and support Don's 'shpeel' on women and their place around professional sports teams' dressing rooms.

(LOOK) Justin Trudeau.. Dragon Slayer or Sir Robin?

Powerful King Harper seated atop his dragon. Alas, has a new Knight come to Camelot to overthrow the Conservatives and follow in his father's footsteps? Or has Justin Trudeau stepped out of the frying pan and into the fire?

The big brawling power teams are crumbling in the wake of the rekindled passionate, hungry Montreal Canadiens. The second streak of the season, Montreal sits atop the North-east division and third overall in the standings.
