Bob Monks, who sadly passed away in 2011, was an artist, illustrator, author, former teacher and television personality in Windsor, Ontario. He was born in Michigan, but moved to Windsor in the 1950s. His signature style of cartooning made his work instantly recognizable, and he became well-known in the area. Monks studied at Los Angeles’ Art Center College of Design and worked professionally in design before becoming a high school teacher. His death saw hundreds of former students, friends, and acquaintances sharing their memories of this inspirational Windsor icon. Bob Monks History of Windsor, which touches on both the most major and seemingly insignificant aspects of the city with Monks’ trademark charm, is his third and final book.
