Gary Clark’s workshop: Inspiring Humour – how to be funny 

Award winning creator of comic-strip Swamp, Diesel Dog and Ding Duck, Gary Clark will present a workshop at the Omega Writers Book Fair on finding and conveying humour.

Gary broke into full time cartooning in 1978 for a national trucking magazine, resulting in two comic editions of his “Trucktoons” successfully published. However, it was in 1981 that his wife of one year sold “THE SWAMP” strip to its first newspaper. The Swamp has to elicited smiles and laughter ever since. His comics are syndicated to newspapers throughout Australia, New Zealand and Europe and translated into seven languages. During his career Gary has received many cartooning awards including nine times winning the prestigious Australian Black and White Artist Club Best Comic Strip Artist Award.

Gary’s unique brand of humour was inspired by exploring the creeks, ponds and bush of suburban Brisbane of his childhood.
