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 31st August 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.
 

Melbourne badly affected by industrial action on its public transport network. A look back!


 
 

Erm, oh these... - 13th January 1990

Deputy Premier of Victoria and Education Minister Joan Kirner hosts visiting delegates from the International Olympic Committee. Their task was to decide on the suitability of Melbourne as a venue for the 1996 Summer Olympics. Atlanta later won.

At this time Melbourne's tram network was shutdown with trams stranded in various parts of the network as power had been cut to the network to prevent the union from running the service for free as part of ongoing industrial action. The train network also experienced industrial action.

Can't find the hook?
