Simon Schneider farewells a ute-load of retiring stars
Author: Simon Schneider
SIMON SCHNEIDER aimed high when he got his Diploma of Graphic Design. Aged 23 and ambitious, he took samples of his work to the man at the top: legendary Sun cartoonist, Geoff “Jeff” Hook.
Geoff was hooked and they were soon working side by side at The Sun. The young protégé showed his flair with cartoons, caricatures and illustrations, working for 25 years on The Sun and its successor, the Herald Sun.
He won two Quills from the Melbourne Press Club and numerous other awards.
Now a freelancer (schneiderillustrations.com.au), he’s turned back the clock, working with Geoff Hook, the designer of the Hounds logo and our regular cartoonist.
