Ockers (1999) ¬was created by Australian performance poet, Pi O and is conceived, designed and illustrated with linocuts by Mike Hudson and hand set by Jadwiga Jarvis, providing a retrospective into 1970s Australian culture and machismo habits (Unbound [sa]: [sp]).

The graphic style bears characteristics to that of comic books, a technique employed and made familiar in the work of American pop artist Roy Lichtenstein (Unbound [sa]:[sp]). Humour is an important aspect of Ockers (Unbound [sa]:[sp]).

Structurally, it is bound in concertina format and is approximately 12m long when fully opened. It is housed in a printed yellow cloth-covered portfolio with red shoe-lace ties together with an Introduction and Glossary of Ockerisms by Julie Copeland.
