Michael Leunig lives in Melbourne. He began working for newspapers in 1969, and his work has been collected in many books. In 1991, there was an exhibition of his work in the National Gallery in Australia. Elusive and outspoken at the same time, Michael has presented his views on the human condition.
One of Leunig's more controversial commentaries,
the "Auschwitz 1942 cartoon" about Israel in 2002,
was denied publication by The Age magazine, and
has been challenged online for its appropriateness.
