Topic of the Month – August 2019

Posted on: July 30, 2019 · 12 comments

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.

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. I’d rather … more »

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.

Every month this website will feature twenty or so 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 if you acknowledge … more »

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 »

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 »
