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 15th February with more to follow!

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.

Confusion and resignation seem to be the name of the day in Australian politics at the moment. A look back!


Nothing to see here! - 28th May 1981

In a time of political turmoil for Australian politicians the recently elected Bob Hawke and Opposition Leader Bill Hayden openly disagreed about the form of Australia's commitment to a multi-national peace keeping force in the Sinai.

On this day, 28th may Premier of Victoria Rupert 'Dick' Hamer had announced his resignation for retirement on June 5 quoting unity of the Victorian Liberal Party as one of his reasons. Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser had also been faced with the deposition of the New South Wales Leader, John Mason, which was announced on 29th May.

Can't find the hook?
