Duggoons is where art and funny collide, and is the brainchild of Peter Duggan. He has another child whom he does not call brainchild, because it embarrasses her. She’s smart though.
Born in Sydney, Peter Duggan has a diploma in graphic design, and a BFA and MA in painting from the University of NSW. In 2005 he moved to London and soon found himself with wife and child. He has worked for numerous commercial art galleries in both Sydney and London and spent 7 years as a Registrar at the Art Gallery of NSW.
He is an award winning writer and director of many short films, all funny. In 2011 he 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 he was a finalist in the Observer/Jonathan Cape/Comica Graphic Short Story prize. His entry was alright.
In 2017 he created a greeting cards company – Duggoons, He is fascinated by the creative process and intrigued by why some things are innately appealing. He now spends his time working up new ways to make people laugh. Many different ranges coming soon. Hopefully funny.
