Odds & Ends & Other Places, my exhibition of prints, watercolours and small objects at No Vacancy Gallery, Fed Square, is closing this Sunday, 22 October.  It has been great – lots of people have come through, quite a few works have sold and it has been extremely lovely showing this side of my art practice in Melbourne.  That is, Horacek … more »

Topic of the month – October 2017

Posted on: September 29, 2017

This month’s topic is ‘Therapy’.  Last month I said that social media was both the blessing and the curse of our 21st century western world lives, and now I’m thinking that perhaps the same applies to therapy.  Maybe the same applies to most of my Topics of the Month.

Next month’s TOTM will be ‘Uncertainty’ (it was originally going to be … more »

Topic of the Month – August 2017

This month’s topic is ‘Rainbows’, which feature quite often in my cartoons.  One reason is that I think the transition from red to purple through all the other colours is the most attractive way to arrange them, the other is that there are so many legends and sayings around rainbows, which makes them good fodder for cartoons.

Next month’s TOTM will … more »
