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

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 »

Help make Judy Horacek’s New Cartoon Book a Reality!

October 12, 2016

It’s high time there was a new Horacek cartoon book out in the world!  The last one was 2010, which is ages ago, and of course I’ve done lots of fabulous cartoons since then.  My plan is to self-publish, and I’ve got a three week crowdfunding* campaign going at Pozible to raise the money.  Really what I’m asking you to … more »

A new way of prints

October 5, 2016

For a long time I’ve been planning to investigate giclee printing in relation to my work (a lot of artists are doing them nowadays) and I’ve finally done it.  Giclee prints are reproduction prints of an extremely high quality, printed on archival paper and with proper pigment based inks.  So, not prints in the ‘printmaking’ sense of getting one’s hands dirty … more »
