Anthony Mars Jenkins was born and raised in Toronto and spent his early career delivering The Globe and Mail. A graduate of the University of Toronto and the University of Waterloo, he joined The Globe in 1974 after a summer at the Toronto Star.

He's worked at The Globe as an editorial cartoonist, illustrator, caricaturist and sometime writer ever since, when not taking leaves of absence to travel on every continent but Antarctica - 78 countries to date.

He continues to travel - now accompanied by a grown daughter or two - and paints "fine art" for fun and profit. Please visit his personal web site
