Here’s to 2017!

December 13, 2016

The Horacek online shop is now closed for 2016, and will re-open on Tuesday, January 17, 2017.  Feel free to order anything you’d like between now and then, but it probably won’t be delivered until next January.  Wishing everyone a wonderful festive season, full of many happy, merry and joyous things, and a wonderful beginning to 2017!  Which can only … more »

Pre-buy the new Horacek book online

November 30, 2016

The Pozible campaign has now finished, and I’m busily working on making my big pile of cartoons into a proper book – selecting, arranging, tidying the scans, getting the design done.

The campaign is over, but you can still pledge/pre-buy copies of the new cartoon book, it’s just moved to my website shop.  You can buy a single copy or a … more »

Last Shopping Days Till Christmas

The Horacek online shop is chockfull of ideal Christmas and just anything gifts – cartoon books, picture books, including Mem Fox and my new one, Ducks Away, prints, the first ever Judy Horacek calendar available in Australia, all kinds of things!  You can even pre-purchase Random Life, the nascent new Judy Horacek cartoon book, to be sent out to you … more »

Topic of the Month – December 2016

November 30, 2016

This month’s topic is ‘Kristmas and New Year’.  Generally I dislike spellings of words starting with ‘c’ with a K (you will never find me anywhere near a Krispy Kreme for example) but as the Topic of the Month is alphabetical, and K happens to co-incide with December, I felt I could do little else.  It is surprisingly hard to … more »

We made it!

November 11, 2016

Thanks so much to everyone who contributed – not only for the money but for the vote of confidence and the support of the idea.  And for the many lovely comments too.  It was really gratifying to feel there was so much love out there for my work.  I achieved the target, so – drum roll – a 224 page cartoon … more »

Success for the New Book Campaign! THANK YOU ALL!

November 11, 2016

My crowdfunding campaign on Pozible was a huge success – thanks so much to all who joined in, it was a lot of fun in amongst the stress.  I raised enough funds for the printing and design of the book, with enough extra to make it 224 pages rather than the originally proposed 192, and to be able to print … more »

Topic of the Month – November 2016

October 31, 2016

This month’s topic is ‘Journeys’.  All kinds – real or metaphorical, necessary or frivolous, sensible or pretentious.  Everything anyone tries to do these days seems to be described as a journey – I hope you enjoy this glimpse into ‘My Cartoon Journey’ Journey.

Next month’s TOTM will be ‘Kristmas and New Year’.  (I hate spelling it that way, but it’s the December … more »

The cover is here!

October 27, 2016

I’m into the final week of the campaign for the new book (it ends 2 November, 10pm AEST) and for the last few days I’ve been working on the picture for the cover.  Covers tend to make me nervous, they are an extremely important part of the book
, and the awareness of that importance can be paralysing.  But I’m quite pleased with … more »

The New Cartoon Book Frontier

October 25, 2016

My Pozible campaign to raise the money to fund the new book has reached 100% of its target, hip hip hooray and hurrah! That was its first target, to print a 192 page book.  It’s also reached its second target, to make the book longer, 224 pages.  Hooray again!  I’m very grateful to all the people who have helped me … more »

And the campaign rolls on (Day 6)

October 17, 2016

In one hour it will be 24 hours times 5 since I launched this campaign to raise the money to selfpublish a new book and it’s going really well, $9285, which is 67% of my goal.  I’m really grateful to everyone who has pledged, from the smallest to the greatest amount.   Thank you all!  Supporters with a special shoutout are Liz Telford, … more »
