Topic of the Month – April 2016

Posted on: March 31, 2016

This month’s topic is ‘Clowns and Other Performers’.  April starts with April Fools’ Day, so it seemed an appropriate topic.  I’m not sure why clowns have been seen as so scary of late – hopefully no coulrophobia will be triggered by these cartoon clowns and the other performers here.  Laughter would be infinitely preferable. (Disclaimer – the TOTM takes all care but no responsibility)

Every month this website will feature ten to twenty Horacek cartoons on a chosen topic. I chose them alphabetically – next month’s topic will be something starting with D.  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 my authorship and the source.  They are cartoons, not memes.  Cartoons this month were first published in The Age, The Australian Magazine, The Canberra Times and in some one-off commissions.

    Judy, you continue to give me much pleasure. This morning I started my April Fools’ day laughing a lot – out loud – at the bad hair day cockatoo series. What a joyous awakening. Thanks Judy, I’ll be chuckling all day!

    Thanks Judy
    You are amazing.
    I look forward to seeing the new book whenever it comes.
    When will you have an exhibition on Brunswick Town Hall?
    That would be great.
    Stay well
