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 »

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 »

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 »
