That makes quite a few languages the Green Sheep is now in – English, Spanish/English, Korean, Kryzg, Hebrew and Maori. Translations of rhyming books are tricky, because of course the words don’t necessarily rhyme in the new language, but somehow it’s working out. I love … more »

Topic of the Month – March 2018

Posted on: February 27, 2018

This month’s topic is ‘Wings’. Flying, with wings and without, has always featured strongly in my cartoons. I admit I do often wish I could fly, although I am a bit scared of heights so I probably wouldn’t be all that good at it. 

Next month’s topic will be ‘Xtinction’.

Every month this website will feature twenty or so Horacek cartoons on … more »

Topic of the month – February 2018

Posted on: February 1, 2018

Welcome to the first topic of 2018.  We’ve interrupted the normal alphabetical order to bring you a topic of great and timely importance, ‘Asylum Seekers’.  The way this country of Australia is currently treating people fleeing from danger is appalling.  It is inhumane, injust and quite probably illegal.  Every person on this planet is entitled to the chance of a … more »

Topic of the Month – December 2017

Posted on: November 30, 2017

This month’s topic is ‘Victory’.  It seemed like a nice way to follow last month’s ‘Uncertainty’.  And then hey, the Marriage Equality Survey in Australia resulted in a resounding Yes, so it’s perfect in that sense (although there are no same sex marriage cartoons in this lot, the result is gloating enough).  The cartoons here aren’t necessarily unequivocal victories – … more »
