Welcome to Geoff "Jeff" Hook's web site. Featuring a twice weekly cartoon, cartoon archives, book details, and other art work, there's plenty to see and you can order, or even commission, an original artwork of your own through the services page.

After over 40 years as an Australian cartoonist, Geoff has now "officially retired" from cartooning and is now devoting all his energies to his painting and sketching, so we will no longer be running current cartoons here on the web site. Don't go away though! We've years' worth of cartoons yet to be shown, so we'll be still running two cartoons a week and while they may not have been drawn yesterday, you will probably note that, perhaps, in the world of politics, not a lot has changed...

Sadly we have to report that Geoff passed away in hospital on the morning of the 20th of July 2018. He was not in hospital very long and died quite peacefully. We're going to take a break for a while, we will be back, just not sure when. In the meanwhile, plenty of his work is now on this website, please explore and enjoy it - he certainly enjoyed creating it!

Feature Galleries:

The Whitlam Government. A tribute to one of Australia's most remarkable Prime Ministers. Relive one of the most turbulent times in Australian democracy and a great period of joy for cartoonists! Wonder as years of conservative rule end, thrill as Parliament is first broadcast live on television, despair at the collapse of the Government's finances, and gasp as the Government is dismissed and loses at the polls. Don't miss the Whitlam gallery.
Views of Victoria and Tasmania. A further 27 paintings have been added to the realist art gallery, featuring works from some of Geoff's recent exhibitions. See the gallery here.
 

The war on single-use plastic is well under way in Australia. Another look back!


 
 

Waste not! - 23rd July 1993

As the division of household waste became more refined Melbourne's councils had the idea to fund waste management by introducing a 'User pays' system and as a means of introducing classification of rubbish. E.G, The rate payer would meet the extra cost of having a green waste bin as separate from general household rubbish - an optional extra for each household of course!

Can't find the hook?
