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...

We're on a break! The next cartoon will be up on 26th of March 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.

The economy and taxation are back in the news. Another look back!


Where it hurts! - 23rd April 1974

An early form of Medibank (later Medicare) had been introduced by the Whitlam Government but it was largely unfunded. The Liberal Opposition was looking for revenue to fund it's own health plan and leader Billy Snedden was leading up to his pre-election launch speech on April 30. Income taxes had increased by over a third for low and middle income earners due bracket creep and high inflation. Home loan interest rates were rising steadily.

The Australian population had huge concerns over the economy.
