Canadian humorist Bruce McCall is mostly known for his speeches on his artistry and his passion for faux nostalgia -- painting a future that never happened. McCall has been fascinated by comics from an early age and rose to fame due to his contributions for The New Yorker in 1979. In the 1950s, McCall began his career as an illustrator, drawing cars for Ford Motor Company. After moving to New York City, he was hired as an artist by the National Lampoon and quickly found his calling in creating artwork with whimsically intelligent humor.
McCall also spent a short period writing sketches for the television show Saturday Night Live; since then, he has been illustrating magazine covers and has written numerous essays on social ironies found in modern life.
