And the subject of politics

So, I used to do some political cartooning for the university magazine a few years ago. I stopped it when I got myself employed, and simply didn’t have the time for it. I have recently become less-employed, started an art course, and bought myself a lovely little tablet (which I’m still desperately trying to learn how to use). And, as our current Prime Minister, the lovely John Key (as drawn above), is a bit of a jerk, it looks like I’ll be brushing up on those old caricatures again…

  1. Yay for the return of your political cartoons! I missed them. Was John Key done on your tablet?

    • Yeh he was. I’m getting better – initially I couldn’t even figure out how to make it useable for left-handers, and everyone ended up looking like monkeys – now, at least I can draw asses too.

  2. I don’t know anything about John Key, but I’m prepared to willingly believe anything you tell me about him! Especially if it’s in comic-form!

  3. Just discovered your blog and really enjoying it. Your cartoons are just gorgeous and a great way of exploring some interesting ideas, I look forward to reading more.
