Life drawing just down the road…

Ever since I moved to Hobart, I’ve been looking for a regular life drawing group to keep the hand in, and finally, over a year down the track, one turns up just down the road. Most convenient, although it doesn’t have the Fortune Of War pub just downstairs and is not convenient for Tom “Fancy a quick schooner during the break?” Jellett. Nonetheless, it was good to draw some lines on paper.

Behind The Lines Exhibition


I recently had the pleasure of speaking and giving a short exhibition of drawing at the opening of the Behind The Lines 2007 exhibition of political cartoons alongside Guy Hansen (curator of the exhibition) and David Bartlett (then Deputy Premier and now Premier of Tasmania – hey, a fortnight is a long time in politics). There was wine and cheese and everything.

The exhibition’s on at the State Library in Hobart. There’s more info here. Go along and vote for me in the People’s Choice Award (cartoon pictured above) and then I will be an award-winning cartoonist and will finally have something to boast about.

It’s been a busy couple of months what with selling 101 Uses For A John Howard and filling in for Leak and Nicholson on the Oz. It’s turned slightly less busy and as I’ve been meaning to sort out the website for a while, now I’m doing it. If everything looks a bit screwy that’s why. Sorry, normal services will resume shortly with any luck.
