Had a launch for my new book, What We Tell Them, at Readings Carlton this past week! What We Tell Them: A Storybook By Mr. Tony Abbott illuminates the words and actions of Australia’s most accidental PM and some of his lovable pals! It isn’t really a children’s book, unless you like your children sad….
Subscribers to my mailing list (you can join at right) just got an essay about the interesting stuff I got to do while taking part at NCS Fest. It included interviews and research for my next big comic. It was busy and fun. You just get the photos! Put together your own story about what…
My new comic can be read online now. It’s called Free Money, Please. I spent several months working on it — including a lot of interviews and transcription!
It’s similar style-wise to the story #takedown from a few years ago, in that it’s me meeting and speaking to people about a topic I don’t like much.

People who’ve read it have compared the tone to a Louis Theroux doc, which I’m taking as a massive compliment as I’m a fan of his work.
zco.mx is a brilliant platform for reading comics on any device, plus you can download an ebook from there, and even chuck me a couple bucks if you like the story.

I ran a very successful Drawing for Story workshop in Canberra, and spoke to ABC Radio that morning about it. Unlike most times I appear in the media, I had a good time and am not completely embarrassed at my poor performance (ask me about the time I was on the kids show Prank Patrol)….
I’m fascinated by lobbyists; the revolving door between lobbying and politics and the effect it has on the world. So when the Senate announced an inquiry into political donations I knew I wanted to pop along to the public hearings. Today’s was in Melbourne, so here’s my entirely editorial-free cartoon scribe. There’s a Canberra one…
