Geoff has given this design his seal of approval. He has just soared back into media prominence like he soared over many a hapless fullback in his short but stellar VFL career. You wonder how a bloke who played in chunky spectacles and kicked 100 goals in a season could have ever faded from the limelight, but there you go. He’s a humble man and probably welcomed the lack of attention.

Some fun facts:

  • He last ran around as playing coach of the Malaysia Warriors in 2000 at the age of 50.
  • He ran a company called Major Pants for 15 years.
  • When a mounted policeman came onto the field to protect him from the adoring crowd when he kicked his 100th goal, the horse slobbered all over his glasses.

I’m a graphic designer and illustrator from Hobart, Tasmania. I am on a mission to educate the public about the early popes, 1970s footballers, imaginary cars I have made up and other things that seem important from time to time. You can find out more about my other work here or email me at
