Topic of the Month – March 2019

Posted on: February 28, 2019 · 16 comments

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 »

Topic of the Month – February 2019

Happy New Year and Welcome Back! This first cartoon topic for 2019 is ‘Fish’, which are wonderfully easy to draw. This is reason enough to love them, but they are also beautiful and graceful and interesting (that’s me in the snorkel in the cartoon below). The cartoons in this topic are mostly silliness, which cartoon fish lend themselves to, with … more »

Topic of the Month – December 2018

Posted on: November 30, 2018 · 12 comments

As befits the end of the year, this month’s cartoon topic is ‘Endings’. It’s a bit about semantics, with dashes of Christmas, fragments of journeys, with traces of relationships, and a bit about the end of the world (sorry, can’t help myself).

As usual there will be no January topic. The Topic of the Month for February 2019 will be ‘Fish’.

Topic of the Month – November 2018

Posted on: October 30, 2018 · 7 comments

This month’s cartoon topic is ‘Desert Islands’. After the last two climate change topics, this one is just silly (mostly).  Desert islands have been staple fare for cartoonists for decades, and I started doing them semi-ironically because of this tradition. Now I do them simply because I like them.

December’s topic will be ‘Endings’.

Every month this website will feature twenty or … more »

Topic of the Month – October 2018

Posted on: September 30, 2018 · 17 comments

This month’s Topic is the second part of ‘Climate Change’, roughly speaking ‘Denial and Extinctions ‘.  What can I say – like so many of us, I am deeply worried about the way we are screwing up the beautiful planet.  The scientific evidence is overwhelming.  So many of the things that were once only models of what might happen, are … more »

Topic of the Month – September 2018

This month’s Topic is ‘Climate Change Part 1: Coal, Energy, and the Reef ‘.  The way we are heading blindly into an environmental crisis makes me weep.  The signs are already here – bushfires in winter, 100 year weather events occurring every couple of years, extinctions, the hottest years on record, the increase in the temperature of the oceans.  The … more »

Topic of the Month – August 2018

This month’s Topic of the Month is ‘Beverages’, because you can’t beat a good cuppa. 

Next month’s topic will be Climate Change.

Every month this website will feature a collection of Horacek cartoons on a chosen topic. I choose them alphabetically. All cartoons are ©Judy Horacek. I’d rather you didn’t use these cartoons without my permission, but if you must, I’d appreciate it … more »

Topic of the Month – July 2018

Posted on: June 28, 2018 · 13 comments

This month’s Topic of the Month is ‘Aliens and Arachnids’.  Why these two things? No reason really. I like drawing aliens and I like drawing arachnids (well, spiders at least) and they are two things beginning with ‘a’. The first cartoon features them both, and was possibly my inspiration for the topic, but if you are looking for any deeper … more »

Topic of the Month – June

Posted on: May 31, 2018 · 24 comments

This month’s topic is ‘Zebras and Giraffes’, which is fitting because June 5 is World Environment Day, a reminder of how important conservation is.  Although to be honest, this topic has come about because zebras and giraffes are such extraordinary looking creatures, that they are irresistible as cartoon subjects.

With next month’s topic we are back at ‘A’ again – it’s … more »

Topic of the Month – May 2018

Posted on: April 30, 2018 · 22 comments

This month’s topic is ‘Yoga, Mindfulness and Overthinking’- a multifaceted topic that allows for lateral cartoon connections. I know what I mean.

Next month’s topic is Zebras and Giraffes.

Every month this website will feature twenty or so Horacek cartoons on a chosen topic. I chose them alphabetically. All cartoons are ©Judy Horacek. I’d rather you didn’t use these cartoons without my permission, … more »
