Michael Leunig

If you haven't heard of Michael Leunig then I am sure you would have seen his work from time to time. This is a man who started his career working as a political cartoonist for the Daily Newspaper in Melbourne back in 1969 and by 1974 he published his first book, The Penguin Leunig, of his collected cartoons. Since then his has flourished as a cartoonist, painter, poet, writer and philosopher. By 1999, Michael was declared a National Living Treasure by the National Trust and was awarded with honorary degrees from La Trobe and Griffith and the Australian Catholic Universities for his unique way of contributing to the Australian Culture.

This incredible artist and beloved cartoonist is here in Perth for a night of heart-lifting entertainment and to help raise funds for mental health and affordable living for those who desperately need it.
