About the Artist

The Rev. Sidebotham serves as rector of the Church of the Holy Spirit in Lake Forest, Ill. Before hearing a call to ordained ministry, he worked in New York in the fields of animation, illustration and advertising. (Some would say he is still working in advertising.) He is grateful not only for the opportunity that parish work affords to continue expressing himself in his drawing, but also for the abundant supply of material for cartoons that emerges in parish life.

To commission a cartoon for a specific event, to convey a particular message, to make a theological point, get the attention of your rector - or maybe your vestry - contact the Rev. Sidebotham.

Original cartoons in color: $750. Black and White: $500.
