Blaine Macdonald


Feb 8, 2012 - Blaine MacDonald was an editorial cartoonist for the Hamilton Spectator (Ontario, Canada) for 30 years until his retirement in 1993, passed on Feb 8. Blaine's style was strongly influenced by the Toronto Star cartoonist Duncan Macpherson...
Blaine received National Newspaper Awards, a Reuben Award and a Salon of Cartoons Grand Prize for his work. Blaine created a national profile for himself and the Spectator through the syndication of his work.

Many of the people Blaine drew in his editorial cartoons stated he was an unbelievably talented artist, whose style captured the essence of the moment. He created a loyal following that would view his cartoons first, before any other section of the newspaper...
