One thing about the Monorail coming down...
I didn't know that was happening,
have they sold it to Auckland?
Polly want a cracker.....
Careful what ya wish for
- that was a 5.2 magnitude!
they'll reset the rebuild clock again...
So who are the young political cartoonists now?
With mainstream print options dying out, I guess they are either doing low circulation zines, blogs or ‘throwing up’ wall art – I have seen some pretty incisive stencil pieces over recent years.
Might be a niche for Public Address, an open online gallery….
PA-rody! We have takeoff! Welcome to the scorn fields…
<added> The print edition of the Walkley Magazine carries some great cartoons/editorial illustrations (as well intelligent coverage of Australian and NZ media) - here's some cartoons from their online presence - worth a poke around the site...
I still miss Nation Review though...
The same ideas, in less high-minded form, are behind Laws’ poisonous talk about “ferals” and his 2009 proposal to sterilise the underclass.
Yes, ya have to be careful with that axe, eugenics...
but seeing it is Friday....
Pizza de resistance...
I had pretty much given up on pizzas (caught a snippet on Hell Pizzas on TV last night which reinforced all the reasons I'd never even tried going there - meathead lovers pizzas!) - but I digress...
The finest (thin base) pizzas in Chchch are to be found at The Mediterranean Food Company in Tuam St, opposite The Star (between Barbadoes and Fitzgerald) also purveyors of all fine packaged and Deli foods and wines from that region,. Give yourself a treat....
The Opera House's in a ear?
Cockle ear implant?
Botanical gardens sculpture walk, Jan 2008.
A Jeff Koonshound?
(NB: the picture above is not by Brockie)
Anyway here’s a rather earlier Bob Brockie Cock centrefold in a similar vein
Luckily the esteemed Hedgehog Champion, Bob Brockie ended up at NBR – being part of the Newrick, Birchfield, Grant scene (without those three NZ Publishing would be much the poorer) – and has contributed a weekly cartoon since the ’70s – though occasionally he had a holiday and when I was there briefly in the very early ’80s I got to try and fill his shoes – with some very amateurish efforts – Though I did sell the original of my first one (Roger Douglas and Lange in wrestling attire, with Douglas attempting to throw Lange out of the ring) to Roger Douglas for $50.
Here’s a much better Douglas by Brockie.
Plus an assortment of Treaty related cartoons by Brockie, Tom Scott, Evans and others
Way prior to that I was almost expelled from Cashmere High for selling copies of Cock, Earwig and Itch at school, back at the time of Alister Taylor’s Little Red Schoolbook.
I still do a regular cartoon/collage for CAFCA’s Watchdog mag. (see above from a coupla years back)
