Despite having internet and computer difficulties, with the help of neighbour Gordon, friend Barney, and Phil Judd and Designer Steve Panozzo, I've managed to Edit another issue of Inkspot for the Australian Cartoonists' Association..... If YOU are a cartoon fan and want to support Australian cartooning, why not become an Associate Member (at only $66 a year, including GST, its money well spent) which gives you four fantastic issues of Inkspot. ($125 plus GST if you're a Professional Cartoonist. (Pensioner rate is $66, and there's also a Special Membership Rate for anyone who's relative was a professional cartoonist....)
...acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to elders past, present, and emerging, and extend that respect to all First Australian peoples.
