You have captured the Gnome superbly FD; even down to his familial financial advisers smirk. Used to be you turned your watch back and hour and twenty years when you flew in to the white shoe capital of the world; now you turn it back an hour and 30 years and tell them at the gate that you are going to Barcaldine to back Joh in race four, “The Prime Ministers Stakes”.
Please tell me the asterisk next to “The Running of the Irukandji” is a typo. They’ve already made as far south as Fraser Island. If all it takes is ten grand to have them run under the Story Bridge who can begrudge that?
“Where else but Queensland” – under Manuel Newman – talking down the state of the economy so that when he turns it round (which won’t be as hard as he makes out) he’ll be able to play Hercules?
Agree with the good Doctor.
Not even Rembrandt could have captured the “essence of Cam” as well as you have today FD. (You also do a bloody good line in asterisks)
I am greatly disgruntled that the cockroach and cane toad racing industries have been totally overlooked. These are exemplary sports where the use of the whip has been banned.
PS. Mr Onthemoon has actually flattered the Mayor of Qld with this portrait – honestly, he’s not that fetching.
FDotM – portraitist to the political classes. Technique, draw on your own thumb. Photocopy. Brill.
Does reading Qld budgets come with a mental health warning ? Reckon it should.
Zut, would it help if we sent a few gruntles over to your place ?
Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely
Clarification required… Is Campbell Newman portrayed in this piece as an (idealogical) “hate-boner”???
Do I have a dirty mind or have you drawn him to look like a gigantic penis?
PS If you have, good on you.
