My name is Gareth Lind. I am a cartoonist.

My social and political satire comic strip, Weltschmerz, ran in Eye Weekly from 1996 until 2007. I contributed a regular political strip for This Magazine from 1994–02 and a weekly political cartoon to yahoo.ca from 2013–14. I’ve been working on a graphic novel since the beginning of time.

I draw funny animals and write biting satire.

I have created two comic strips, aiming for the mainstream syndicates: Turtle Creek and Snibbler, about a turtle and a snail. Both were rejected. I’ve also drawn non-shelled creatures in the regular cartoon, Footprint in Mouth, which satirized environmental issues for Alternatives Journal. You can check out my creations below. They were gathering dust in the basement, lonely and forgotten, so I let them out.

Tim Hortons is not my friend.

While working for Yahoo.ca, I researched the below cartoon, extrapolating from studies of the number of disposable coffee cups in Canada’s landfills and Tim Horton’s share of the coffee market to estimate the company’s environmental impact. I calculated 3.5 million cups a day. The below cartoon is still shared on social media when that time of year rolls around. (In 2020, the Brazilian-owned company finally created a digital alternative to Fill Up the Landfill to win. Baby steps.)

While working for Yahoo.ca, I researched and drew this cartoon to show the impact of this company’s waste on our environment. (Spoiler alert: big, bad impact.) The cartoon is still shared extensively on social media when that time of year rolls around. In 2020, the Brazilian-owned company finally created digital alternative to Fill Up the Landfill to win – you can do it digitally. Baby steps.
