After answering an ad in the Banff Crag and Canyon newspaper in 1997, Patrick LaMontagne suddenly found myself with a weekly editorial cartoon. In 2001, he accepted the editorial cartoonist position with The Rocky Mountain Outlook newspaper, the same year he became nationally syndicated. By 2005, he was a full-time cartoonist and illustrator, despite having never received any formal art training.
The detail and brushwork in his digital painting style has often been mistaken for traditional media, and although he’s drawn a lot of different things over the years, those whimsical animal paintings are what he enjoy most.
He and his wife Shonna continue their pursuit of happily ever after in Canmore, Alberta, surrounded by the beauty of the Canadian Rockies.
