  • Roy Peterson, Fearless Cartoonist

    Vancouver Sun sketcher, and my mentor, was almost as great a journalist as he was a human being. By Bob Krieger, 2 Oct 2013, TheTyee.ca Aside from being an incredibly kind, humble, hilarious, brilliant and elegant gentleman, Roy Peterson happened to be a world class editorial cartoonist. He won more National Newspaper Awards than any other journalist, the Order of Canada, and more awards and honours than he or a mathematician could count. Roy Peterson was born in Winnipeg in 1936. He died Monday, Sept. 30, joining the love of his life, Margaret, and leaving two sons, three daughters, nine grandchildren and a massive hole in journalism business.  read more

  • Cartoonist Roy Peterson’s precise aim was piercing

    Longtime Sun artist picked up seven National Newspaper Awards in a career that established him among the greats of Canadian journalism By Pete McMartin and John Mackie, Vancouver Sun October 2, 2013 There was that about him that, physically, was pen-like — the sharp line of his nose and profile, the quiet manner hiding a pointed intelligence, a humour that could be as black as ink. Roy Peterson drew more than editorial cartoons with his pen. He took aim. He died Sunday. He was 77. He was on his living-room couch in his West Vancouver home. “I went into the kitchen to fill up a glass of water he needed for his medications,” son Laurie said, “and when I came back a few seconds later he was gone.” He leaves behind five children, nine grandchildren and a body of work that for the honours it received was unmatched in the history of Canadian journalism.
