Kevin spent 15 years on the art staff of a small Chicago-based magazine where he met and married a wonderful Canadian lady. They eventually moved north to rural Ontario which provided the inspiration for Kevin’s book of cartoons called TRUE NORTH, The Nearly True Story Of An American in Canada. About this book Lynn Johnston (For Better or For Worse) said, “Kevin’s ideas are right on target, his timing is great, punchlines too.”
