REG LYNCH AND HIS “BULK REG – A CARTOONIST’S COLLECTION”

I found this last February at the Berkelow Books in Paddington.  The Paddington in Sydney, Australia, not the many other Paddington’s around the world.

Berkelow Paddington

The publisher of this book  is Pluto Press Australia, and their website states  their aim is:

To publish agenda-setting books that combine an intense interest in the Australian story with an exploration of thought and ideas that engage our readers and stimulate discussion.

They also state that they are an independent publisher of non-fiction books.  So now we know that the following cartoons are not fiction.  You have been warned.

Here is an interview of Reg Lynch on YouTube.  Unfortunately, the music track  on 80% of the interview drowns out his words.  I guess if you are from Australia, you could follow along with his comments.  Unfortunately, with my tin US ear, I could not.

Google images as usual has a whole flock of images.

He has an entry on Xoum.  I have never heard of that outfit, so here for your edification and mine,

Xoum is an independent digital publishing company founded in 2011 in Sydney, Australia, by publishing and design professionals David Henley, Jon MacDonald and Rod Morrison. It is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Xou Pty Ltd.

Feel free to follow the link for XouPty Ltd.  I just love the flowing prose that washes over you.  Example:

A multi-disciplinary design agency driven by creativity and innovation, Xou brings a wealth of intelligence and inspiration to every project. 

Sounds like every mission statement ever written.  Or, for that matter, what Pluto Press said about themselves…

Well, moving right along.

Flicker gives us, Retrospective exhibition opening, Tamworth Regional Gallery, 12 January to 9 February 2013

The first is from January 13th, 2013.

And the second is from January 12th 2013.

He also has a presence on the Australian linkedin,

Here is another bio, sort of, from the “Design and Art Australia Online.”

This bio says he is an associate of Mark Lynch.  I did a quick search for that name, but found no familial link.

So, let us peek at his book.  From page four,

And page five.

Later on in the book he provides us with,

He mentions his time in Japan, so here is a page from the book on that subject.

Well, enough background.  Let us peek at a few of his cartoons from “Bulk Reg.”

Australians enjoy sports, so, let us start off with,

And on to medical issues,

The following works on so many levels.  Down the river, we have a Multnomah County Board Chairman who comes to mind when looking at the cartoon.

Discretion

And since I mentioned a US county,

MissAmerica

The following works for all types of writing, not just poetry.  Trust me.
