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 1st May with more to follow!

News! 12th November, 2016. Geoff added to ACA's Hall of Fame

We are pleased to announce that Geoff was inducted into the Australian Cartoonists Association's Hall of Fame at the 32nd Stanley Awards on the 12th of November.

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 Federal Government announces a review to the citizenship test which will emphasize "values". Another look back...


 
 

It's hard to know where to start... - 3rd August 1988

The FitzGerald Report on Australia's Immigration Policies was released in June 1988 and debate started about its attitude to multiculturalism and multiculturalism in general. The Office of Multicultural Affairs was concerned that the report was hostile to the concept of multiculturalism but members of the committee preparing the report felt the opposite. Debate and surveying of opinion continued.

Can't find the hook?
