Bill Leak’s cartoons


Bill Leak spoke at the Union Club last week and explained the difference between art, illustrations and cartoons. Cartoons used to be throwaways until they were shared through social media and now they get a lot of attention, reflecting current community issues in a creative and sometimes satirical way. ps IdeaSpies does not take a view on politics and is now paying more attention to cartoons.

  1. Beautifully drawn by a cartoonist who is also a trained artist, nothing is ever wasteful and although humorous, is always pertinent and (justifiably) controversial. I can’t understand the obloquy which the artist has frequently gained – after all his work is just a cartoon: something to be looked at briefly in the context of the day’s news.
