Overhearing with Oslo Davis – Tights aren’t pants, Buttercup

Oslo Davis is back again today sharing some of his favorite overheard design, art and fashion cartoons! With each as funny as the last, I expect we will all be overhearing and/or quoting some of these lines at some of the upcoming design markets. – Jenny x

For the past couple of years I’ve contributed three cartoons a week to the back page of the Age. The idea behind the cartoons is that it should be something local and/or topical, although this is not always the case. Selected here are some design/art/fashion-related ones.

Melbourne, its people and the stuff that goes on here inspire me, and I find if I can see this world with a cynical enough eye something usually pops out and becomes cartoon-worthy.

If you look at these cartoons regularly you will know that I often struggle to come up with something funny. Luckily I seem to have done a few funny ones that have kept me in the game … just.
