I’ve presented more than 300 cartooning workshops to more than 12,000 people. Speakers Ink is an Australian literary agency with its office in Brisbane and they handle my bookings. I’ve now started doing presentations about photography too, running through a bunch of tricks and tips involved in getting publishable images. Please contact these folks for more information if you’re interested in the idea of me visiting your school or library.

Tinkerbell the Tax Fairy
Sydney-based Tink is a tax concierge. Which means she’s brilliant at things like Business Activity Statements, bookkeeping and helping us mere mortals prepare for their accountant. She turns boxes of receipts and files into accountant-ready spreadsheets but without charging the top accountants’ rates.
Mike not only draws cartoons but he also takes photos of wildlife. What’s not to admire about a combination like that?
