Topic of the Month – December 2019

Posted on: December 1, 2019 · 6 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

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.

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.

This month’s topic is Leaping and Diving. Sometimes deliberate, sometimes accidental, sometimes sporty, sometimes metaphysical. Definitely more AFL cartoons than usual, but hey, apparently it’s that time of year.

Next month will be Mildred cartoons.

This month’s topic is Knowledge. A little bit of it is apparently a dangerous thing, but a bunch of cartoons about knowledge (or at least things we know and things I’m pretending we know) is surely a great and wonderful thing. Although who actually knows?

Topic of the Month – June 2019

This month’s topic is Joy. You can never have too much of it, but I think we particularly need it at the moment, when we are facing the a climate crisis that our leaders don’t want to do anything about, when we are witnessing the rise of fascist elements in our societies, where our politics are being taken over by … more »

This month’s topic is Ideas. Absolutely everything depends on Ideas – let’s all try and have good ones.

Topic of the Month – April 2019

This month’s topic is ‘Hearts’. Metaphorical, literal, sentimental, allegorical, decorative – we have all kinds. May yours stay unbroken, and be full almost to bursting.

Next month’s topic is ‘Ideas’.

This month’s topic is Greed. There’s a lot of it about.  The chocolate and cake kind of greed I’m not really in a position to criticize, but the rest of it – the rapacious nature of corporations, the destruction of our planet in pursuit of profit, the unethical and immoral behaviour of banks leading people into debts they can’t afford, … more »
