Seeing as i’m the other type of ‘guy’ that is mainly found in Melbourne and associates themselves with trams, punk music, and gays. I would have no clue what the “stripper from snapchat is”






Melbourne cartoonist Geoff “Jeff” Hook died yesterday aged 89. He was best known for including his signature hook anywhere on his cartoon.

I first came across his work in the early 1990s when I saw his cartoons for The Met (now Public Transport Victoria) on trains and trams. His work was generally about daily life while another top artist Ron Tandberg specialised on political cartoons.


Very sad, was always a challenge to search for his hook. He did a series of kids books for each VFL team. Many cartoons were set at Doorub railway station, Hook’s local spelt backwards, Burwood.

When the Herald merged with the Sun, Hook was relegated to Sundays with Mark Knight becoming the daily cartoonist. Here’s Knight’s tribute.


Jeff Hook’s cartoons appeared not only on The Sun and the Herald Sun, but also RoyalAuto (RACV member magazine).
