cartoon theology over a stimulating lunch

Had a most stimulating lunch with Paul Windsor, who flew down from Auckland for the day to discuss his potential D. Min dissertation. He’s making some fascinating linkages between the Engels scale, contemporary communication, the parables, church billboards and cartoons.

“fill the billboard space outside the church with self-deprecating, subversive imagery that constitutes a public confessional for our ‘unChristian’ behaviour and creates discussion in church and community”

And he’s looking for cartoonist’s to interview about how their creativity works, how they read culture and frame their responses. So, blog readers, who are the cartoonists you admire for their ability to read contemporary culture subversively, humorously, tongue well placed in cheek?

  1. aye up!

    re subversive and humourous cartoonists – how about dave @ and jon @ for starters?
    dean rankine [] is brilliant.

    and richard thompson is a consistently superb –
    tom gauld and simone lia are also well worth checking out…

  2. A second shout for asbojesus here, quite simply one of the most subversive Christian cartoonists working at the moment.

    Grace and peace
