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...

The next cartoon will be up on 29th July 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.
 

Against a background of rising youth unemployment, the discussion turns to education. A look back!


 
 

The bright side... - 11th October 1991

The Teaching Profession was included in the industrial unrest of the time as people struggled with cost of living, fewer jobs and rising unemployment during the economic downturn. The impact would be felt by the young, especially on school leavers.

The State of Victoria was led by Premier Joan Kirner, herself a great advocate for excellence and provision of public schools.

PS. She famously did NOT own a polka dot dress.

Can't find the hook?
