Michael Leunig is a “philosopher cartoonist” and biting social satirist from Melbourne, prone to ducks and penguins. He is huge down under — declared one of “Australia’s Living Treasures” by the National Trust of Australia, and celebrated in the opening to the 2006 Commonwealth Games hosted in his hometown.
Leunig — his first name is rarely used — has 25 books and a cartoon run in Melbourne’s The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald. He graciously granted us permission to reprint some of his cartoons, and we’re hoping for an interview in the new year. You can find lots more at his official website. Very taoish indeed.
