Drawing privacy cartoons since the year dot(com).
In 1992, Chris Slane began creating cartoons about privacy and security for use by his father and New Zealand's first Privacy Commissioner Bruce Slane. Initally they were used on transparent overlays at privacy conferences, then in newsletters and on christmas cards. Since that time Chris has continued to add many more cartoons to the collection. Now the catalogue might be the largest online professional database of visual humour on this subject.
These cartoons have been licensed by corporations, governmental, health and privacy authorities in Australia, Canada, Germany, France, Sweden, Norway, Holland, the USA, Great Britain. They have been translated into French, Swedish, Norwegian and German. They have appeared in books, posters, powerpoint presentations, animations, brochures, billboards, tote bags and postcards.
If you like the cartoons, consider licensing some. Feel free to make contact if you have suggestions for new cartoons and improvements to the catalogue.
