cartoonist Garrick Tremain spoke
about his work and gave details of his new book,
Years of Garrick Tremain at a New Zealand Book Month event at
the Dunedin Public Library last night.
He kept an audience of about 100 entertained with stories
about the grind of producing a daily cartoon, his
unsuccessful attempt at retirement, how he became a
cartoonist and the responses he gets.
While people ascribed a lot of power to cartoons, it was
nonsense as they only reflected or mirrored the news of the
day, he said.
However, they helped people who felt disenchanted, confused
or powerless, feel like they were not alone.
