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 23rd of November with more to follow!
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.
