Topic of the Month – August 2017

Posted on: July 27, 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.

Random Life is here!

Posted on: July 5, 2017

Judy Horacek’s ninth cartoon collection was launched on 29th June at Bella Union to much applause and laughter. Random Life is now available in stores and for purchase here in the shop.

“Judy Horacek is one of Melbourne’s most loved cartoonists – her wise, witty, often whimsical cartoons cover subjects as diverse as climate change, feminism, social media, fairy tales, Mondays and zebras. Her ninth collection will … more »

Topic of the Month – July 2017

Posted on: June 30, 2017

This month’s topic is ‘Quests’, to follow that star etcetera.  A profound topic, with probably many profound things to say about it, but I’ll let the cartoons do the talking (profundity not guaranteed).

Next month’s TOTM is Rainbows.

Every month this website will feature ten to twenty Horacek cartoons on a chosen topic. I chose them alphabetically. All cartoons are ©Judy Horacek. I’d rather you … more »

Random Life – coming soon!

Random Life is the title of my brand new cartoon collection which will be available in shops from 3 July 2017 (in Australia at least).  It contains over 230 cartoons, plus an introduction by me, and a foreword by the late, great John Clarke.  It’s the first publication of Horacek Press, which is basically me.  The book was made possible … more »

Topic of the Month – May 2017

Posted on: April 30, 2017

This month’s topic is ‘Ocean’.   The extraordinary, mysterious ocean – source of all life and lots of play.  Whether playing a starring role in a cartoon, or simply there as a backdrop, you can’t beat the ocean.

Next month’s TOTM will begin with ‘P’.  That’s all I know, so that’s all I’m saying.

Topic of the Month – April 2017

Posted on: March 31, 2017

This month’s topic is ‘Night’.  Which for Patti Smith might belong to lovers, but for these cartoons seems more to belong to insomnia and visual gags.  With lots of stars and moons, and more crosshatching than your average TOTM, here are cartoons to face the darkness with.

Next month’s TOTM will be ‘Ocean’.

Topic of the Month – March

Posted on: February 28, 2017

This month’s topic is ‘Monsters’, of all sorts.  Looking at these as a collection, clearly I have issues with bêtes noires (thanks Diane, for the handy hint on how to get the accent on the ‘e’).  But there are monsters of other kinds here too, hope you enjoy them, or whatever it is one does with monsters.

Next month’s TOTM will be … more »
