Test 2

October 19, 2013

Here are two kookaburras I saw last week at the coast. They were very friendly, although I know it was about a desire for me to feed them, not any great affection for me. They are here because I am testing out posting to my website from my phone, and hey presto, it works. As they say in the song, … more »

Where is the Treasure Sheep?

September 30, 2013

When I was in Canberra last week doing the final little things on the new edition of my cartoon book, I am woman, hear me draw with the National Museum, I also had the chance to go to the National Library of Australia to visit the amazing Treasures exhibition, full of treasures from their collection – original manuscripts, photos, ephemera. … more »

Hear me Draw New Edition!

September 2, 2013

For the past little while I’ve been working on updating my book, I am Woman, Hear Me Draw, published by the National Museum of Australia.  It began life as a catalogue for my exhibition of the same name, which opened at the Museum in Canberra in 2002 and then toured to a number of different institutions around Australia.  The catalogue … more »

Cartoon for ‘I have a dream’ anniversary

August 29, 2013

It’s 50 years since civil rights leader Martin Luther King’s famous ‘I have a dream’ speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington.  This cartoon also features in this month’s topic of the month, but I thought it could have its own post on such an auspicious anniversary.  Although it must be said, my take on it doesn’t … more »

Destroying the Joint

August 21, 2013

For the last little while, I have been working on a new version of one of my earlier books (more concrete information soon!).  Anyway, as part of this endeavour, I coloured a cartoon of mine from a while ago.  What once was black and white, or the card version with spot colour, is now resplendent in watercolour.  There’s been a … more »

Hearts Out

July 25, 2013

This cartoon was originally published in the Age earlier this year, and was in my Topic of the Month in June, but I thought it was worth posting it again for obvious reasons.

Climate Change

April 16, 2013

A cartoon I did a couple of months ago, when filling in as editorial cartoonist on The Age.  Sadly, I don’t think it’s going to look outdated any time soon.

Yellow is my favourite but I love them all

My Beautiful Palettes!  I spent last Friday afternoon cleaning and arranging my palettes in preparation for making some new pages for a new LONGER edition of  Yellow is My Favourite Colour (stay tuned for more details). The book is a celebration of all the colours, and so is this photo. I am very excited that the book is being republished, I … more »

Talking at the NLA in Canberra

January 27, 2013

For those in Canberra, or  travelling there early February, I’m on a panel talking about our experiences of Canberra at the National Library.  It’s a special cocktail function and as well as me there will be Karen Middleton, Susan Ryan, Petria Thomas and Christine Gee.  You’d have to say that was something for everyone.  Not to mention the canapés as … more »
