Goodtrolley — a silly illo by Ian Gunn

This entry is part 4 of 6 in the series Goodtrolley

Good trolley

Ian Gunn, the artist, titled this drawing Good Trolley but, after hearing Harry Laing reading some of his poetry (hilarious!) no trolley will ever be good again. Super Tap, Psycho Trolley and Wheel E Bin are the gang by which all other gangs will be judged.

Besides, isn’t Good Trolley encouraging vandalism? He’s provided this nice white wall and, with his wicked smile, he’s inviting you to write in it.

Ian Gunn, creator of these silly illos (illustrations), was a beloved award-winning artist based in Melbourne. Cancer took him from us too soon.

Ian left a legacy including lots of great illustrations. Many of these illustrations are available for sale.

Victoria’s science fiction convention, Continuum, occasionally presents the Ian Gunn Memorial Award recognising the ‘unsung heroes’ of fandom: people consistently working in the background who never expect any recognition of their efforts. This commemorates Ian’s selfless efforts to reach out to others, encouraging others and thereby building the science fiction community.

K’rin Pender-Gunn, Ian’s widow, gave Dark Matter Zine permission to republish Ian’s artwork. Thanks, K’rin!
