An exhibition by a prolific artist whose cartoons have filled the pages of some of Australia’s most prominent newspapers and magazines was held at Charles Darwin University last month.

Cartoons and illustrations that capture some of the biggest moments in recent Australian history were hung in the Nan Giese Gallery in a show entitled “The Last Picture Show”.

Graphic design lecturer and cartoonist Steven Moore said the exhibition gave him the opportunity to farewell the collection of his pieces from the past 20 years. He gave away the work to members of the public on the proviso they made a donation to the UNICEF Syria Children Appeal.

“I am having one last look before saying goodbye to these drawings,” Mr Moore said.

“Many of them were done during the eight years I was illustrating for Phillip Adams’ weekly column in The Weekend Australian.

“People may recognise some familiar faces in my cartoons, including John Howard, Tony Abbott and a woman by the name of Pauline Hanson.”

Other leading mastheads bearing Mr Moore’s works include The Age, Sydney Morning Herald, The Australian Financial Review, Reader’s Digest Australia, Vogue Australia and Conde Nast Traveller.
