Otago Daily Times cartoonist Garrick Tremain spoke about his work and gave details of his new book, 20 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.
