"Michael Leunig is an Australian cartoonist, writer, painter, philosopher and poet. His commentary on political, cultural and emotional life spans more than forty years and has often explored the idea of an innocent and sacred personal world. The fragile ecosystem of human nature and its relationship to the wider natural world is a related and recurrent theme."
"True art does not look like art."
"In the artist of all kinds

which belongs to the co-existence of two trends;
the urgent need to communicate
and the still more urgent need not to be found."
