He got his start as a political cartoonist for Black Press Media, and studied humour writing, storytelling, and performance at the Second City Training Centre in Toronto.

NEW! Learn to Draw Comics with Robin Crossman (15+)
In this hands-on course, designed for everyone from those just starting out to long-time doodlers and dabblers, students will discover and explore their cartooning style and voice. We’ll sketch out the fundamentals of comedic comic strip creation, such as character development, digital vs. traditional drawing tools, and how to write a perfect punchline (we’ll even touch on the serious business of selling your work!). With in-class guidance and encouragement, we’ll help you set your imagination loose as you bring your own comic strip to life! Instructor: Robin Crossman
This class is now going to be offered in the Fall. Watch the website for updates.
