  1. Hi Simon

    I was already familiar with your work through the Tobacco and Mental Illness project, working with Maxie Ashton. At present I’m working with a tobacco project as part of the Closing the Gap Commonwealth program, and we require a series of illustrations to accompany this. Firstly, are you available, and if so, have you completed any work for an Aboriginal program that you could show us?

  2. Thanks on your marvelous posting! I quite enjoyed reading it,
    you are a great author.I will remember to bookmark your blog and will
    eventually come back later in life. I want to encourage you continue your
    great posts, have a nice evening!

  3. Simon did FANTASTIC work for us on Aboriginal incontinence and aged care – a comic which captured Aboriginal sense of humour and handled this very delicate topic perfectly. He worked closely with Aboriginal artist and Health Worker Esther Quintal of Port hedland WA

  4. Hi Simon
    I noticed an article which mentioned a book which has just come out Family Conference: Justice for Young Offenders in South Australia. Whereabouts is this available please?

  5. Thanks kindly Simon! 🙂

  6. Hello Simon,
    Our church community is raising funds for the Syrian refugees by holding a concert. Would you grant us permission to use your powerful cartoon (Where are you from? Earth; – refugees in a boat) in the programme for the concert?

  7. Hi, I am Aaloka Kanhere from Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education(, India. I came across your illustration of the bridges of Konisberg while developing an investigative activity for children around the Konisberg Bridge Problem. I was wondering if we can use your illustration with all due references. This activity would be used for absolutely non-profit purposes and would be used with atleast 100-150 students from various part of India. The worksheet would also be put on the project website. Can you kindly give me permission to use this illustration?

    • Hi Aaloka Kanhere,
      Certainly, I am pleased to give permission for you to use the illustration for your educational activity. I hope it goes well. Best wishes,

  8. Thank you very Simon. I will send you link of the webpage once it comes up.

  9. Hi Simon, I have seen a little cartoon you drew online when I did a Google search and I wondered how much it would be to use it on a Twitter and Facebook post about my Solution Focused approach to Hypnotherapy.

    Kind Regards,


  10. Hi Simon, I came across your illustration regarding evaluation (wrench and the nut) and was wondering i I may use the illustration for a class presentation. It would be used in a slide deck deck for the presentation for an audience of approximately 50 people, referenced appropriately. Many thanks for considering this request.


    • Thanks Jennifer, that is fine for you to use the cartoon in your presentation. I hope it helps.
      Best wishes,

  11. Hi Simon, I am working on a thesis about family violence against women with disabilities for my masters degree in Social work and came across your illustration. I think it would be great for my front page as it shows common forms of family violence that women with disabilities are subjected to, such as verbal and financial abuse. I am wondering if you will grant permission for me to use your illustration, referenced appropriately of course. Many thanks for your consideration and have a lovely day. Sam

    • Hi Sam, Thanks for your message. Yes, I’m happy to give you permission to use that illustration in your thesis. I hope it helps!
      Best wishes with it all,

        Thanks so much Simon. Love your work too!

  12. Hi Simon, Greetings from Cyprus. Huge fan, love your cartoons and illustrations. I Co-Admin a Community Nature page where we actually advocate plant trees, grow herbs, frutis, veges and interact with the community at large in Cyprus where we encourage them to reforest their private land and become more environmentally engaged to tackle waste issues, address pollution on a small scale through Permaculture one yard at a time. All of what we do is non profit, we do not derive any profit for our time, even the occasional poster’s that we make, share, link or upload/ promote. Credit is always given to other pages respectfully.

    I was wondering if it is ok to upload some of your images to promote your life’s work, credit yo andu link in your facebook page to stimulate educational awareness occasionally? Kindest regards, Joanne.

  13. Is it possible to get a PDF of your safety posters?

  14. Dear Simon,
    I was just wondering whether you could explain to me the message of your “1967 and counting…” cartoon? Thank you.

    • Dear Abhi, thanks, I hope I can explain it!
      One question in the 1967 Australian Referendum was seeking to have Aboriginal people counted in the census – this received 90% approval. My cartoon tried to point out that although Aboriginal people have been counted along with all other Australians since 1967, they are still waiting to ‘count’ – to really matter – when it comes to other measures like health, education and more, when compared to other Australians.
      Best wishes,

  15. Hi Simon, Greetings from Sky Jade Partners. Huge fan, love your cartoons and illustrations. I Co-Admin a Community AFC WeChat platform where we actually post some articles to link the social community between China and Australia. All of what we do is nonprofit.

    I was wondering if it is ok to upload some of your images to promote your life’s work, we are happy to promote your Facebook page and website page.

    Kindest regards, Arthur
