The Latest

'Department of Australia' Clears Up Australia Immigration Confusion + New Kickstarter Comic

Pretty stark, eh?

That’s one of the logos on the Australian Customs and Border Protection website.

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/feb/11/government-launches-new-graphic-campaign-to-deter-asylum-seekers

A (mostly) wordless comic ethnically profiled an expected wave of Afghan asylum seekers, and made ‘the lucky country’ look pretty harsh indeed! http://www.scribd.com/doc/206353924/Australian-Immigration-Deterrent-Comic

Who to call? The Department of Australia to the rescue! Sydney-based Leslie Nassar gracefully inserts wordful wit to clarify the government’s misstep in a charming détournement.

[Additional art on Dept. of Australia FB Page]

======================

There’s also an additional parody by ‘Pauline Pantsdown’.

2012 in Review: M. P. Fikaris

What have been your personal cartooning/comics highlights of 2012? Starting up a little store room in my studio and printing up a new periodical DAILIES while pushing through my inhibitions of medium and painting some comics.

Christopher Downes 2012 in review

What have been your personal cartooning/comics highlights of 2012? I went to the Australian Cartoonists Association's Stanley Awards weekend for the very first time. I had to crowd fund in order to get there, but it was really fun. I got to meet a lot of heroes of mine and they turned out to be genuinely nice people.
