It’s intriguing when a person noted for particular skills tries something altogether different. Some attempts end better than others. Andrew Denton was the first to claim he couldn’t draw, but for a love of cartoons he was willing to chance vulnerability in the attempt. He even invited guest illustrators for contrast. Wit is a virus that survives many forms of transmission, and Andrew’s efforts compare favourably to Russell Crowe’s discography.
Here’s a small offering from ‘Looking a Little Drawn’, a collection of commissioned cartoons by Andrew Denton for Going Down Swinging’s Longbox – out now.
Still waiting on your Longbox? The Going Down Swinging team has been madly assembling each copy, and they will be dispatched from HQ before the end of August.
Longbox is supported by the NSW Government through Arts NSW.
