Topic of the Month – August 2020

Posted on: August 1, 2020 · 8 comments

This month I’m doing the topic of Triumph, the one that I’ve postponed for a couple of months. It’s Triumph, and when I first planned it a few months/lifetimes ago, the virus was first hitting, the tone just didn’t seem right – too overconfident, too boastful, maybe courting more trouble. But now, in Lockdown 2.0 in my home town of … more »

Topic of the Month – July 2020

Posted on: June 27, 2020 · 10 comments

This month’s topic was going to be something starting with T to keep with the alphabetical sequence, but given we are  still in the throes of the covid-19 crisis, I decided to break with the alphabet for a second month, and do Climate instead. Because even though we pretty preoccupied with the virus, we must not forget that the planet … more »

Topic of the Month – May 2020

For this month’s topic I’ve broken out of our usual alphabetical order to bring you ‘At Home’ instead, a selection of cartoons about being at home. Hope you find some comfort and recognition. Next month’s topic may well be ‘Still at home’ LOL.

Take care and stay safe everyone. xx

Topic of the Month – April 2020

Posted on: April 1, 2020 · 29 comments

This month’s topic makes no mention of viruses nor pandemics. It was decided on before all that hit. Maybe it’s a reminder that things pass, that nature goes on, or maybe it’s just a bunch of cartoons. Anyway, it’s Seasons, and it’s turned out to be mostly summer, even though I love all seasons equally. Maybe summer just lends … more »

Topic of the Month – March 2020

Posted on: February 29, 2020 · 13 comments

This month’s topic is Riddles. It’s a smaller topic than usual, because the recent Ornithology topic sucked up a lot of my ‘Why did the chicken cross the road?’ cartoons. But luckily not all of them – here’s a riddle ‘Why does the cartoonist do so many chicken crossing the road cartoons?’

The next topic will be in April 2020 and … more »

Topic of the Month – February 2020

Posted on: January 29, 2020 · 30 comments

This month’s topic is Queens and other Courtly Folk, a topic which I promise you was decided on before the recent Harry and Megan conflagration, so don’t go looking for cartoons about them, nor any recognisable royalty. I prefer generic, fairytale and Pythonesque royalty.

The next topic will be in March 2020 and will be ‘Riddles’.

Topic of the Month – December 2019

Posted on: December 1, 2019 · 16 comments

This month’s topic is Philosophy, mostly in a very broad sense of an already very broad word, but it does also include some famous philosophical names. Best of luck discovering the meaning of life.

As usual there will be no January topic. The next topic will be in February 2020 (2020!) and will be ‘Queens and other courtly folk’.

Topic of the Month – November 2019

Posted on: October 31, 2019 · 10 comments

This month’s topic is Ornithology, which is a fancy way of saying Birds, because it felt like a great time to do Birds as a topic but we’re nowhere near B. So here is a topic full of those feathery objects of study of ornithologists – what’s not to love?

Next month’s topic is Philosophy.

Topic of the Month – October

Posted on: September 29, 2019 · 4 comments

This month’s topic is ‘Not (and No)’. Apologies if this seems negative, it just seemed like too fruitful a topic not to do (see what I did there?)

Next month’s topic will probably be Ornithology.

Every month this website will feature twenty or so Horacek cartoons on a chosen topic. I choose the topics alphabetically. All cartoons are ©Judy Horacek. … more »

Topic of the Month – September 2019

This month’s topic is Mildred, a character who one day just sprang into my head, full of angst and complaints against the world. She’s not me, but I am sometimes her.
