Leunig-tic fringe


Leunig by Pants


I've waited ages for an opportunity to publish this photo of Australian cartoonist and official national treasure Michael Leunig. I snapped it on the campus of The University of Queensland sometime in the mid-seventies. I guess that is obvious from the Fair Isle vest he's wearing. History does not record what Pants had on but it could easily have been something of a Fair Isle nature.

The excuse is to link to this exquisite rant in The Age today, to which I can only reply, 'so it's not just me, then'.
