The Gallery

Welcome to the gallery.

The gallery is divided into three sections cartoons, black and white sketches, and colour realist art work. It's purpose is to provide a perspective on some 40 years of work, as well as to introduce new material which will be added to the archives and provide another place for the "Hoo Ha" game to go!

What else is there to say? Enjoy!

To enter click on the links below.


The Whitlam Government. A collection of cartoons about some of the wildest times in Australian politics. The election, rule, and subsequent dismissal of the Labor Government of Gough Whitlam.
A Queensland Gallery. A collection of cartoons about another colourful character from Australian politics, Queensland's Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen who, amongst other things, used to refer to giving press conferences as "feeding the chooks"!
When Benjamin Franklin once said that there were only two certainties in life, one of them was taxes. What he should have said was that there were three certainties, the last being that where governments tax the populace, the cartoonists will comment! See 35 years of the "highlights" of government revenue raising in Australia in the taxation gallery.

The "HooHa" Game.

When Margaret Whitlam made a seemingly innocent comment to her husband, the then Prime Minister, Gough Whitlam, about what she was hearing on return from a good will visit to Japan, little did she realise what she had unleashed!

Experience the first few years of the Whitlam Government for yourself with the "HooHa" game! Published in the boxing day edition of the "Sun News Pictorial" in 1974, the game only appeared in the first edition, as in later editions the paper was taken up with more news of the devastation caused by cyclone Tracy in Darwin - the extent of which was then only becoming apparent.

There are two files for the game, one which includes the game in A4 format plus a description, the other just includes the game in A3 - its original format.

See if you've got what it takes! Try your hand at the HooHa Game in A4, or in the original A3 format.
