A lifelong Albertan, Dave Elston was Canada’s only full-time editorial sports cartoonist for 13 years. He is a singular talent and his work is decidedly Albertan. He is a breath of fresh air in a landscape littered with political commentary.

Quick Quotes

"I've been a fan of Dave Elston's for years, from his disheveled, scrunched-up hockey players, to his eccentric yet oddly endearing horses (ever notice how Elston's horses always look more intelligent than his hockey players?). As an Albertan, born and bred, I salute him for tackling the land of the prairie oyster and the Chinook headaches. Well done! (And for the record, page 72 That's absolutely true. I swear.)"
— Will Ferguson, Giller Prize winner for 419


"As someone who lived in Alberta for 17 years and who had the privilege of working with Dave at the Calgary Sun for a decade, he always delivered … a nice sick sixth sense of humor. This one just adds to his legacy. Well done, Dwarfus!"
— Bill Davidson, former Sport Editor, Calgary Sun
