FROM MY CARTOON ARCHIVE

This began its life in the mid-1980s as an ink sketch for a political cartoon contest organized by Aliran. It later reincarnated in 1996 as a color illustration for Journal One.

Can't remember if this was also for the Aliran cartoon contest - but it also ended up in Journal One in 1996. If you can't read the words click on image to enlarge!

One of a series commissioned in 1990 by Australian author Ken Pinches for his unpublished book on how the brain works.

This one also appeared in Journal One, I think.

Part of the Ken Pinches collection. In the original black-&-white version the girl appears without her bikini, which had to be added so it could appear in Journal One - but I forgot to draw a bikini for the mutt!

Harry and Sheila were created to demonstrate the intricacies of amoeba sex but ended up illustrating an article on male-female polarities.

Part of a series commissioned in 1991 by the Malaysian International Chamber of Commerce & Industry (MICCI) for an illustrated booklet on how the local business environment works. Later reappeared in color in Journal One.

Another for the MICCI booklet that subsequently appeared in Journal One.

From the Ken Pinches collection, first published in Journal One.

Can't recall why I did this one but I think it also appeared in Journal One. Enlarge by clicking on image, the details are worth the effort!

My tribute to Umno and its mastery of the propaganda machine, never before published except online.

Created this as an avatar for my shortlived "Agony Ant" column on kakiseni.com (where at least a hundred of my reviews are archived).
