End of the Year

December 12, 2012

Well it’s nearly the end of 2012.  I’ve only just realised that 12 is my lucky number – I didn’t make enough of this at all! The Horacek studio and office will be closing on Thursday December 13, so if you want any cards or prints for Christmas, get the orders to us by the end of Wednesday 12 December. … more »

Best Australian Political Cartoons 2012

November 28, 2012

A nice piece from SBS of the editor Russ Radcliffe talking about the annual cartoon anthology, Best Australian Political Cartoons. My Walkley nominated cartoon is in there, as are First Dog on the Moon’s and Mark Knight’s. Lots of work by brilliant Australian cartoonists. (The unnamed cartoonist with the barbed wire cartoon is the wonderful Cathy Wilcox by the way.) … more »

July 16, 2012

As it goes on, the thrill of today is starting to pall somewhat, but this is how beautiful it looked at dawn with the picture book moon and two bright stars. (I could have left out the telephone lines but I liked them too.)  Actually today has been okay really, but so far at least this morning sky has definitely been … more »

Denialists a la mode

June 30, 2012

Okay so tomorrow is a new financial year.  It doesn’t seem very business-like to start a new financial year on a Sunday, surely someone should have done something about that. It’s also the introduction in Australia of the much spoken of, ineptly-named carbon tax.  Here’s a cartoon I did recently for the Melbourne Age about that very thing – remember … more »
