"Chris Slane's sense of humor is sharp and wicked and so much to the point!"

"The very last cartoon shows a couple on the beach saying "It's so good to get away from it all" while everyone is taking photos with their mobiles. It makes a point I have been making for a while now: some of the loss of privacy is a consequence of things we do to ourselves or to each other."

"Chris's cartoons have interpreted the human impacts of these changes in a perceptive and humorous way, dealing with social networking, surveillance, big data and privacy breaches.

Chris is skilled at visualising the issues to draw out the risks and beneļ¬ts of the new digital medium. The cartoons are an invaluable resource. The main thing people will remember from a speech about privacy is often a colourful cartoon image which lightly carries the burden of a serious message."

"Privacy has been a special subject for Chris Slane's cartoons since 1998. Many aspects of privacy have come in for his attention - the impact of technology, business use of information, health, government databases - he has challenged them all. "Chris Slane is a leading cartoonist today, working for a number of magazines in an era when reputations are usually still made via a daily editorial page cartoon," says Ian F Grant, founder of the NZ Cartoon Archive at the National Library. "Cartooning has traditionally been a black and white art, but Chris has added a new dimension with his striking use of colour, particularly as the Listener's political cartoonist."

"Chris Slane: A distinct, effective edge to the cartoons that curries no favours. Strong views expressed, no fence-sitting. Savage caricature, but those portrayed instantly recognisable."
