Random Life – coming soon!

Posted on: May 31, 2017

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 – June 2017

This month’s topic is ‘Preview’, in honour of the imminent launch of my new cartoon collection, Random Life, published by Horacek Press (me!) and available in bookshops in Australia from July 3 2017. All the cartoons are from the new book, and they all have something in them starting with ‘P’.

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 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.

Topic of the Month – February 2017

Posted on: January 30, 2017

This month’s topic is ‘Longing’, which seems a good way to start a new year. Or maybe it is the absolute worst way to start a new year.  Quests, quotes, wishing, plenty of ‘if only things were different’.  A topic full of wist – but at least it’s a Trump-free zone.
