Limited Edition Art: "The Fix for Planet Earth" by Bruce McCall
Bruce McCall (born May 10, 1935 in Simcoe, Ontario) is a Canadian author and illustrator. He began writing and drawing at age six, when he felt a “compulsion” to start recording his thoughts on paper. He began his career in a commercial art studio in Windsor, Ontario. As photography replaced drawing in the advertising world, McCall transitioned to writing copy for firms in New York and Detroit. After a brief stint writing for The National Lampoon and Saturday Night Live, McCall refocused on his artwork.
McCall is best known for his work with The New Yorker, where he has been a regular contributor since 1980. Largely self-taught, his art has adorned a number of magazine covers, including those of The New Yorker and The Walrus. He is also a humourist and satirist; his writing frequently appears in The New Yorker’s “Shouts & Murmurs” section, and he won the Gold Medal for Humour at the 2009 National Magazine Awards for his article “A Liar’s Life” in The Walrus. McCall has published two story collections, an illustrated humour book, a memoir, and an illustrated children’s book. He is represented by the James Goodman Gallery in New York.
