Occasionally I’m called upon to do caricatures of people, particularily those who are retiring or moving on to bigger jobs. Here’s a picture (by Kathy Gayder) of Ian McLeod, the outgoing CFO of The Hamilton Spectator. He’s moving on to head the finances of Metroland, the parenting company of the Spectator as well as several other dailies and community papers. In this cartoon I drew him as the King of the bean counters, whereupon he sits on a hill of beans. All the best, Ian.
