Australia’s best political cartoonist wins Cartoonist of The Year Award


Canberra-based political cartoonist David Pope (AKA Heinrich Hinze) has won one of Australia’s top cartooning honours, taking out the 2010 Cartoonist of the Year Award in Melbourne on Nov 6. Here is his perfect comment on the big four banks that dominate Australian financial sector (and much of the rest of the economy too!).

His cartoons — which are incisive in their relentless exposure of the rich and powerful, and their minions — are now regularly published in the Canberra Times . An archive of David’s work is available here. Enjoy and be empowered!

When the world is the obscenely ridiculous, unsustainable and cruel path that it is today, we need one, two, three… many David Popes!
