The Chronicle Herald is Canada’s last remaining independently owned newspaper, and has been in print for over 140 years. I’ve only been drawing for them on a freelance basis since 2013, so was honoured when asked to produce a portrait of Ian Thompson, who was Associate Publisher at the time, as a leaving present from his colleagues. The portrait was handed over at the end of December 2014, and judging by this photograph was well received. Ian is now Director of Cystic Fibrosis Canada, a charitable organization committed to finding a cure, improving patient care, and raising awareness of CF.
