Graeme MacKay is the Hamilton Spectator's resident editorial cartoonist. Born in 1968, this self-proclaimed "news geek" grew up in Dundas, Ontario. Except for a few art classes at a local School of Art, Graeme's skill in cartooning is largely self-taught. After studying politics and history at the University of Ottawa, he travelled Europe with pen and sketchbook in hand. In 1997, he began his professional career at The Hamilton Spectator. MacKay's cartoons have appeared in newspapers across Canada and the U.S. in addition to various magazines and periodicals. Graeme and his wife, Wendi, live in Hamilton, Ontario with their daughters, Gillian and Jacqueline.
