One cartoonist whose work I love is Mordillo. (At least the older work I remember.) I used to have several large posters of his in my room as a Ph.D. student. They're long gone; I'd buy some to replace them, but I doubt any are available in New Zealand. I still have a few books of his work, but I prefer the larger scale of the posters. For those who haven't seen them, his work has a very sweet humour that pokes fun at life.
