Duggoons is where art and funny collide, and is the brainchild of Peter Duggan (me). I have another child whom I don’t call brainchild, because it embarrasses her. She’s smart though.
I was born in Sydney, have a diploma in graphic design, and a BFA and MA in painting from the University of NSW. In 2005 I moved to London and soon found myself with wife and child. I have worked for numerous commercial art galleries in both Sydney and London and spent 7 years as a Registrar at the Art Gallery of NSW.
I am an award winning writer and director of many short films, all quite funny. In 2011 I created a comic strip on the art world for the Guardian online, which ran for several years, which was funny. In 2015 a collection of these was published by Virgin Books, called Peter Duggan’s Artoons, also funny. In 2016 a French translation was published by Flammarion. Apparently it’s funny. In 2017 my entry was a finalist in the Observer/Jonathan Cape/Comica Graphic Short Story prize. It was ok.
In 2017 I started the greeting cards company Duggoons. I love the creative process and now spend time working up new ways to make people laugh. Many different ranges coming soon. Hopefully funny.
