Illustration by Graeme MacKay

Sharing of any editorial cartoons from this site in digital form is free

Feel free to share and spread the editorial cartoons discovered on this website across various social media platforms! Sharing is highly encouraged and easily accomplished through our user-friendly interface. Just click on the date of the cartoon you’d like to share, and a new page will promptly offer you a selection of platforms to choose from.

Graeme consistently shares his cartoons on Instagram and Pinterest. While less frequent, you may also find occasional posts on either Facebook or whatever Elon Musk currently refers to as Twitter *(on December 31, 2023, Graeme terminated his ‘X’ account.) He hopes Bluesky will eventually serve as a better platform to engage on. 

Scholarly individuals, including students, teachers, or academics, are granted the freedom to display any of MacKay’s cartoons for in-class studies or audience presentations without the need for prior consent. This applies to non-profit projects, assignments, speaking engagements, or teaching aids, allowing you to project his editorial cartoons on the big screen without contacting him for permission. However, if you wish to inform him about your presentation and express your appreciation for his art, feel free to drop him a line to convey your gratitude!

Sharing digital illustrations is allowed without charge. As a gesture of goodwill, we kindly request that you provide proper credit to mackaycartoons.net whenever you repost content from any platform. Just as we learned the importance of citing sources as students, let’s continue this practice as responsible adults.

The printing of any editorial cartoons requires a licence

Obtaining permission by purchasing a license is essential when printing artwork created by an artist. In other words, if it’s ending up on paper payment is required. This transaction not only protects the artist’s rights but also ensures the proper usage of the artwork by the individual or company involved. Graeme’s editorial cartoons are distributed through Artizans.

If you represent a newspaper, magazine, book publisher, company, or organization, whether for-profit or otherwise, and you are interested in reprinting any content from this site, please contact Graeme directly. He will connect you with his distributor, Artizans, to facilitate the necessary arrangements. The syndicate offers fair rates based on the size of your publication’s or website’s audience for the usage of his cartoons.

For government entities, such as Ministries or Departments, seeking to use any of the cartoons for instructional purposes in textbooks or on organizational websites, please reach out to Graeme. Similar to other cases, fair rates will be applied based on the size of the audience.

Graeme, The "Brain Parts of Hamilton" is wonderful. The white print was difficult to read. Would it be possible to run it again in a larger format? Your take on politics captures a city's annoyance and frustration.
