Details sketchy, but cartoon award sought
MORNING Bulletin cartoonist Tim O'Bree may have reached the pinnacle of his ambitious career to date, but he's got no plans to slow down.
At 29, Mr O'Bree is the country's youngest newspaper cartoonist and he's on a mission to conquer the cartooning world.
Mr O'Bree has just secured the front cover of Australian media bible, the Walkley Magazine.
He had been one of only a handful of cartoonists around the nation invited to vie for the August/ September cover.
Mr O'Bree said he was stoked to have won the honour.
"It's the single highlight of my career so far. It's the biggest stage I've ever played to. I've just got to win one (a Walkley Award) now,'' he grinned.
Mr O'Bree said MP Amanda Vanstone had been the obvious choice for the anything-goes front page.
"It was a variation on a editorial cartoon I had drawn for the Bully. Amanda Vanstone is always fun for cartoonists.''
Mr O'Bree has worked at the Bully for the past two years.
Having now won the attention of his peers with the magazine, he believes he's now at the start of a long road to success.
