The Secret of Creating a Perfect Cartoon

What does it take to dream up the “perfect” cartoon 365 days a year? Take a truly twisted tour through the mind of Leigh Rubin, creator of the daily comic panel Rubes® and discover what it takes to stay creative, fresh and funny 365 days a year.


Leigh Rubin is an author and cartoonist. He has written 20 books. 2020 marks the 36th anniversary of Leigh's internationally syndicated cartoon, Rubes®, which is now, distributed by Creators Syndicate to hundreds newspapers and media outlets worldwide.

In 2018 Leigh had the honor of being selected as Rochester Institute of Technology’s first Cartoonist-in Residence.

In addition, on November 7th, 2018 Leigh and his co-producer Ryan Johnson premiered the pilot episode of their new TV show "Drawing Inspiration" at a special East Coast showing at RIT.

His work has been featured in film, television and advertising. Leigh also enjoys traveling the country, (now virtually), giving thought-provoking and entertaining presentations on art, cartooning and creativity at conferences, colleges and professional organizations.
