I’ve been meaning for ages to give a plug to Colin Wicking’s blog. Wicking is the long-time chief cartoonist for the Northern Territory News and Sunday Territorian (the local Murdoch rags here in Darwin). People tend to either love Wicking’s cartoons or hate them. I’m unashamedly in the former category.
Wicking is justly famous for his croc cartoons, and is also the undisputed king of Lindy Chamberlain/dingo cartoons (he’s almost certainly drawn hundreds of them).
The main reason some people hate Wicking is that he’s anything but politically correct. He always draws Territorian women as ugly and us blokes as beer-gutted, blue singlet-wearing pisspots. What an insult! I don’t even own a blue singlet.
Wicking’s blog contains a steady stream of his idiosyncratic cartoons (although not, sadly, the ones published daily in the NT News), links to lots of other cartooning sites, assorted posts mostly about cartoons and a weekly round-up of Territory news. I strongly recommend it for at least weekly visitation.
