I will be having session at the Tasmanian Writers’ Festival with First Dog On The Moon and Chris Downes called “Illustrating The Now” in which we shall divulge the secrets of the black art of political cartooning. It is on this Saturday at 2pm and you may buy tickets here. Do come along, it will be lovely.
In honour of the big day in Sydney, here’s a cartoon I just found looking through the archives for another cartoon. Yes, this is from back in the days when I drew stuff in ink on paper and the cartoons were printed in (shudder) black and white. Anyway, here you go. Have a lovely time.
Look, rather than paying $20 or so to go and see a third of the Hobbit at the movies, you should definitely pay just $15 and get a calendar that covers the entire year with twelve glorious full-colour cartoon drawn in cutting edge 2-D (though I am thinking of selling it as a trilogy for 2014).
*Spoiler alert: Gollum appears as Mr February next year.
Here is a cartoon from my weekly Sightgeist spot in Weekend Review which is the same spot that the cartoons for my calendar come from, which is interesting.
