Leigh Rubin – cartoonist, author and speaker

Leigh began his cartooning career in 1978 by establishing his own greeting card company, Rubes Publications. His first cartoon collection, the popular Notable Quotes musical cartoons, was published in 1981.

In 2009 Leigh celebrated the 25th anniversary of Rubes® with the publication of The Wild and Twisted World of Rubes, a “best of” collection which contains 240 of his personal favorites out of over 9,500 cartoons.Originally self-syndicated, Rubes is now distributed by Creators Syndicate to more than 400 media outlets worldwide. Rubes appears in major daily metropolitan papers, such as the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, the Toronto Sun, The Oregonian, The Washington Times, The Sacramento Bee, The Orange County Register, the Los Angeles Daily News and of course our own San Luis Obispo Tribune.

Leigh also enjoys a busy schedule giving thought-provoking and entertaining cartoon presentations at conferences, as well as professional organizations all around the country.

“And to people who are on the fence as to whether to attend or not, Rubin has just this to say: “Do they want to tell their grand kids they missed this event?  What shame they would have. It’s like ‘I could have gone to Woodstock.’ ”

Copies of his books will be available for purchase.
