The cartoon first appeared in Australian Options magazine – discussions for social justice and political change – which is celebrating its 20th year of publication! I have drawn cartoons for every issue.

“Mr Morrison’s suggestion that he was not aware that his Department was funding RCOA is difficult to accept,” Power said.

Australian Options is a quarterly  journal ‘which aims to challenge the ideas dominating Australian mainstream debate’. Major articles are by ‘activists and progressive thinkers on contemporary political, social and cultural issues’. It is now heading into its 19th year of publication – and of my ‘cartoon commentary’ illustrating many of the articles. Here are some from the last couple of issues.
