First Dog on the Moon
“Marsupialiminal – The world is terrible. Furry animals, intrepid chickens, talking pizza. A spring roll argues with a fox terrier at the opera.
Spending the last 7 years as a full time professional political cartoonist has given me a unique insight into what it would be like to have spent the last 7 years as a full time professional political cartoonist. It is pretty good, no it is fantastic.
Life is wonderful when it isn’t dreadful. How fortunate we are those of us who are fortunate, let’s share some of it around shall we? Yes let’s.” – First Dog on the Moon, September 2014
