9th August 2018, Tributes to Geoff

We have also received this drawn tribute to Geoff from American cartoonist Tom Kerr.


Welcome to Geoff "Jeff" Hook's web site. Featuring a weekly cartoon, cartoon archives, book details, and other art work, there's plenty to see and you can still order artworks through the services page.

We are no longer running current work on the website as Geoff finally laid his brushes to rest on the 20th July, 2018, after more than 50 years as an Australian cartoonist and artist. Don't go away though! We've still years' worth of cartoons yet to be shown, so we are publishing one cartoon 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 taking a break! The next cartoon will be up on 23rd September 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.
 

Poverty and long term unemployment dominate the news in Australia. A look back at the beginning of the current safety-net scheme - Newstart.


 
 

A new opportunity? - 2nd July 1991

On 25th June, 1991 the Social Security (Job Search and Newstart) Amendment Act 1991 was ratified. The Newstart allowance was for the retraining of people who had been made unemployed and for those whose jobs were disappearing. Recession effected both jobs and economic growth.

Can't find the hook?
