To commemorate and recognise the late Robert Hebden.
My brother, Robert James Hebden, passed away in 2014 from Cancer. He was a popular local cartoonist (pen name HEB) for over 50 years and contributed a weekly topical cartoon to local newspapers for over 40 years. The Townsville Library held an exhibition of his work in 2015. The Perc Tucker Gallery also exhibited his works in February 2016 during Townsville's 150th celebrations. Robert also submitted two entries in the Archibald. Several Books of his most popular cartoons were also published; one of which was included in a 'time capsule' buried by the City Council many years ago.
Robert was a musician (drummer and guitarist) for several local bands, one being The Pacific Mainstream Jazz Band for over 40 years.
