Think Like a Cartoonist


Leigh Rubin is an accomplished author and cartoonist with more than twenty books to his credit. He has an internationally syndicated cartoon, Rubes®, which is distributed by Creators Syndicate to hundreds of newspapers and media outlets worldwide. His work has been featured in films, television, and advertising. 

Rubin enjoys a busy schedule giving thought-provoking and entertaining presentations on art and creativity at conferences, as well as professional organizations. In 2018, he began serving at Rochester Institute of Technology as their first Cartoonist-in-Residence. When not hard at work putting pencil to paper at his ancient drawing table, he can be found daydreaming and doodling. . . . Oh wait, that is his work.
