Rubes cartoonist Leigh Rubin - Inspiration with a twist

"Thanks again for your fantastic keynote address at our Assessor's Offsite Training Conference on November 2. Your presentation was very engaging and entertaining! The reviews have all been very positive. Your wit and unique perspective of everyday situations in your cartoons gave the audience a new, lighter view of the various facets of life that we all experience. Your brand of humor and whimsical art demonstrated to our staff that comedy can be found anywhere if you approach it from the proper angle. What a great way to start the day! You played a large role in making this the most successful training conference we've ever had."
Rebecca Ross, Chair,
Offsite Planning Committee,
Office of the Assessor,
County of Santa Clara, CA.
"Leigh Rubin is a master of the visual pun. His Rubes cartoons take everyday situations and twist them into pure fun and enjoyment. Leigh was invited to be the kick-off speaker at the International Listening Association's 33rd Annual Convention and had everyone in the audience intently listening with both their ears and their eyes. His cartoons are visually simple yet convey a depth of understanding of both life and humor. It was a morning to remember for all who were present and we thank him for setting the pace for a very successful conference and convention."
Alan R. Ehrlich, CLP,
International Listening Association
"Leigh Rubin is a raconteur, a teacher, an artist, and oh yes, a wonderful cartoonist! He is also a captivating speaker, incredibly generous with his time, and accessible to everyone. He is, in short, an absolute delight. We hope that Leigh comes back to our campus soon!"

"College students can be tough audience members but Leigh Rubin captivated us from the beginning of his talk at Oregon State University. His cartoons tickle a universal funny bone without offending anyone, which is almost impossible to do. Oregon State University Student Media learned that even doodling pays off when you put your (twisted) mind to it."
Julia Sandidge
Student Media Director,
Oregon State University
"Leigh was a great success with our group and I would ask him back in a heartbeat. Leigh's talk was high energy, very interactive and filled with personal warmth that you could see got the audience thinking as well as laughing long after the session had ended. Those that attended his session gave great reviews and those who didn't said they wished they had. . . .Leigh worked closely with me right up to the conference and made a point of attending other sessions before his own in order to meet and better understand our very heterogeneous group. After his session he became part of the conference, even collaborating with our closing keynote speaker who used some of Leigh's cartoons to illustrate his session. That's commitment!" Co-Chair, Usability Professional's Association Conference
"People laughed, they leaned forward in their seats, they asked questions and they stayed afterwards to talk with him. That's what every program committee member wants. What impressed me most was Leigh's commitment to understanding our group and making sure he found angles that addressed the needs and interests of his audience." Program Committee Chairman, Agricultural Media Summit
"Leigh gave a witty, insightful and entertaining presentation to a varied audience. . .Afterwards, I received nothing but enthusiastic feedback about Leigh's presentation from people who attended." President, National Agriculture Marketing Association-Badger Chapter

"Leigh spoke to our sales team and provided some much needed comic relief from our otherwise serious and intense meeting. Leigh has a way of making you forget all your troubles and causing you to view situations in a whole new and light-hearted way. We had a very enjoyable afternoon of non-stop side-splitting humor that we will not soon forget!"
Jay Hardy, CEO
Hardy Diagnostics, Santa Maria, CA

"I can say with certainty that attendees loved your session 'Creativity on Call.' It was just the finale I was going for after three long days of educational sessions. . .I'm sure it comes as no surprise that your 'edu-tainment' session drew raves reviews from our group. . . .Not only were you an energetic speaker but also an engaging individual. Many of our members commented on how they enjoyed the opportunity to talk with you one-on-one." Speaker Committee Chair, Cooperative Communicators Association Annual Institute
