Sean Leahy has been the resident political cartoonist at The Courier Mail since 1985 and has employed his rapid-fire wit and sketching skills to respond to the political and social issues of the day.

Y' want salt rubbed in that? Sean Lahey: Political cartoons

The exhibition included political and non-political personalities and featured a three-way interview between Leahy, Mike Ahern and Wayne Goss. Savage satire and elegant wit delivered daily with our morning newspaper are our expectation of cartoonists. Like court jesters, they seem are able to get away with telling the king unpalatable truths which would result in anyone else losing their heads.
