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! The site will show a random cartoon a day, and there's over 2000 cartoons, sketches, and paintings in the website's archives. While the cartoons may not have been drawn yesterday, you will probably note that, perhaps, in the world of politics, if not the world in general, some things have not changed...

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.
 

Today's selection from the archives!


 
 

There's always something worse... - 12th July 1968

Pastoral workers Vincent Lingiari and other Gurindji elders lead their people in the Wave Hill Walk-off in August 1966. It was the beginning of a long battle. This cartoon in 1968 marks the on-going struggle. Bad wages and working conditions at Wave Hill - a Vestey cattle station were the surface problems.

Recognition and respect for the Gurindji people and rights to their lands was a far deeper and underlying impetus for action. On 16th August, 1975 Gough Whitlam came to Daguragu. His government purchased and handed back freehold title of Gurindji Land at Wattie Creek on that day.
