About this Event
The Australian Cartoonists’ Association presents “Three of a Kind” on Saturday, 24th August, a traditional cartoonists’ get-together featuring three speakers representing different branches of cartooning, so it will be a night with something for everyone. The cost is $25 (which covers food by Kiwi & Rooster and the hire of the hall - BYO drinks!) so booking by 20th August is essential.
This year our three speakers will be:
Jules is an illustrator and cartoonist, well-known to younger readers for his contributions to David Warner’s The Kaboom Kid series, Michael Pryor’s Leo Da Vinci books and Anh Do’s WeirDo series.
Jules is about to launch his own series of books and both author and illustrator, beginning with The Quest Diaries of Max Crack, to be released this year by Pan Macmillan. Jules is the incumbent President of the Australian Cartoonists’ Association.
Queenie’s first published work was a 3-volume mystery-horror series called The Dreaming for LA-based manga publisher TOKYOPOP. To date, it has been translated into multiple languages.
She has since collaborated on several single-volume graphic novels with best-selling author Dean Koontz, as prequels to his Odd Thomas series of novels. After that, she worked on Small Shen, the prequel to Kylie Chan’s White Tiger Chinese fantasy series, followed by Fabled Kingdom, a 3-book fairy-tale inspired fantasy adventure.
Currently, she is working on her next project: a non-fiction children’s graphic novel titled Women Who Were Kings: The Most Powerful Queens in History. It will be a collection of biographies about the lives of famous historical queens from all over the world.
When Mr. Squiggle left our TV screens in July 1999 after 40 years on-air, it was Rebecca Hetherington who was holding his hand. Rebecca, whose own accomplishments range from acting through to running her own public relations company, is also Norman Hetherington’s daughter and is now custodian of his vast body of work, which includes not only his famous puppets but a lifteime as one of Australia’s more prominent (and very much loved) cartoonists.
Earlier this year, the Royal Australian Mint released a set of coins commemorate Mr. Squiggle and his friends, testament to the enduring appeal of Norman’s creativity.
