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 28th April with more to follow!

Feature Galleries:

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.
Taxation Gallery. When Benjamin Franklin once said that there were only two certainties in life, one of them was taxes. What he should have said was that there were three certainties, the last being that where governments tax the populace, the cartoonists will comment! See 35 years of the "highlights" of government revenue raising in Australia in the taxation gallery.

Echoes of the past as the Australian Government under fire over a strike fighter purchase. A look back!


Difficult, difficult, difficult. - 15th May 1969

As the 1969 Federal election approached the Gorton Government faced three difficult issues, the purchase of the F-111 which was seen as overpriced and costly, Australia's involvement in the Vietnam War, and the progressive withdrawal of British influence in Malaysia and the presence of Australian troops there. At the time, none of the government's positions on these were sitting well with the Australian public.

Can't find the hook?
