Meet Our Cartoonist, Harry Bruce


Satirical Cartoonist Harry Bruce

After three years as a high school teacher, I have spent 30 years as a freelance cartoonist. I do mainly political cartoons every day for The Cairns Post, Townsville Bulletin and Rockhampton Morning Bulletin and weekly ones for the Mackay Daily Mercury and Sentinel News.

Before the decline of the Newspaper Industry, I worked for many other local papers and would regularly do up to eight cartoons a day. That has dropped to about three. So with the extra time I do quite a few personalised caricatures for people and promotional artwork for advertising and design agencies. Lately I am also learning an awful lot about taxation law by drawing a monthly cartoon for the Tax Reformer.
