My name is Patrick LaMontagne, and I’m a cartoonist and digital painter.

After answering an ad in the Banff Crag and Canyon newspaper in 1997, I suddenly found myself with a weekly editorial cartoon.  In 2001, I accepted the editorial cartoonist position with The Rocky Mountain Outlook newspaper, the same year I became nationally syndicated. By 2005, I was a full-time cartoonist and illustrator, despite having never received any formal art training.

The detail and brushwork in my digital painting style has often been mistaken for traditional media, and although I’ve drawn a lot of different things over the years, those whimsical animal paintings are what I enjoy most.

My wife Shonna and I continue our pursuit of happily ever after in Canmore, Alberta, surrounded by the beauty of the Canadian Rockies.
