My Scrapbook

Ottawa-born Pete Emslie is a huge Rockford fan (my, what great taste he has), and posts a new caricature of James Garner every year on the actor’s birthday on his blog, The Cartoon Cave. He’s worked as a cartoonist in the print medium for over 30 years, including a ten-year stint with Disney, and has taught Character Design in the animation program at Sheridan College in Oakville. A pop culture junkie, he has a particular fondness for the 1960s, tagging it as a “time when everything in commercial art and popular entertainment still made sense to me. It was Sinatra’s world and I’m still livin’ in it.”

He currently lives in Mississauga, Ontario, and currently freelances for for Disney and other clients,illustrating children’s books and other Disney merchandise.
