Welcome!

 
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...

The next cartoon will be up on 29th January with more to follow!

News! CARTOONISTS FOR FREE EXPRESSION EXHIBITION

PIECE GALLERY 26 Murray St Yarraville, Vic, 3013, Australia.

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 Australian Open Tennis Championship starts in Melbourne, with the games in Canberra not going so well.


 
 

Not quite reaching the other side. - 19th January 2015

The Australian Open, a highlight of the Tennis Year, has commenced at Melbourne Park in Melbourne Australia to record opening crowds and enthusiastic fans.

Less successfully Liberal Prime Minister Tony Abbott is meeting with great disapproval as he fails yet again to get his satisfactory outcome for Medicare co-payment propositions. While the Liberals have the numbers in the Lower House of Federal Parliament less co-operative Senate Members who represent a wide Party selection are well able to block legislation.

Can't find the hook?
