Cartoonist hardly describes Leunig. His L-borders are hand drawn, reminder we are going into a human space, not a mechanical repetition. He once said, you cannot argue with a teapot. There is something in Leunig striving to disable people’s futile contest of wills. The symbol of peace is a dove, yet this cliché was replaced some time ago in Leunig by a duck. The duck waddled into view one May morning; now when it shows up you know it’s pointless arguing. Then there’s Michael’s sister, Mary. She’s the unexpected in the drawing’s narrative that upsets the applecart. Laugh out loud.
