Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Video on Wednesday 8 May 2013

Hey, it’s pretty endearing stuff, especially with her slurred voice telling the joke. We can totally see more corny joke-to-cartoons coming right […]

His off-kilter cartoons, which are a wry comment on human condition, have been published in newspapers and surf titles like The Bulletin, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Good Weekend, The Melbourne Age, Australian Surfing Life, Fleur (Brazilian Surf Magazine). When I asked why he doesn’t take his cartoons to job interviews, he told me he thinks they might just be an acquired taste, and wouldn’t want to upset any delicate palates. I’m starting to understand what he was getting at.
