Profile Last Updated: September 22, 2008
John Yardley Jones has been putting pen, pencil and paint on paper for decades. The effervescent Welshman, known around Edmonton just as “Yardley,” was an editorial cartoonist for several decades, and won a National Newspaper Award in 1971 for his timely drawings. His unique caricature style has been featured in a number of murals and decorative features around Edmonton, and his art also adorns many event posters and commemorative works.
In His Element
One of the best ways to really connect with this modest icon is to visit his studio. There you will be able to capture a better sense of his cheerful persona, alongside his wonderful talent. Make sure to call first and let him know you’d like to come over, knowing you will be welcome. If he’s not out running another marathon, Yardley is always ready to welcome others to stop by and enjoy his intimate home museum. Stop by for the art; stay a bit for the experience.
