Adrian Raeside was born in 1957 in Dunedin, New Zealand. He began drawing cartoons on washroom walls as a kid. After being expelled from his first (and last) art class at the age of 15, he moved with his parents to England, then to Canada. While there, he worked at various jobs, from loading grain ships in Thunder Bay, Ontario, to surveying on the West Coast. Illustrating his mother Joan Raeside's children's books got him his start in the art business. Raeside began drawing editorial cartoons for the Victoria Times Colonist in Victoria, BC in 1979. He occupied the editorial cartoonist position until 2015, when he was let go by the newspaper. During that time, Raeside's editorial cartoons were reprinted in hundreds of publications worldwide.
