Baker did many cartoons in series form on various subjects including the state of our public footpaths, nuclear tests, etc.

In the 1980s Baker had to undergo major surgery and had to stay in hospital for post-recuperative care for some time. Never one to sit idle, Baker observed the scenes around him and quickly sketched them down. The result is an unpublished cartoon book on hospitals and the idiosyncrasies of the medical profession with over 80 cartoons that are hilarious yet so true!

Baker was amused by the amount and cryptic nature of technical jargon which gained popularity with the advent of computers. Unable to resist the temptation to add his intepretation to these acronyms, Baker did another set of 50 odd cartoons explaining various computer temninology the Baker way.
