Topic of the Month – April 2017

Posted on: March 31, 2017

This month’s topic is ‘Night’.  Which for Patti Smith might belong to lovers, but for these cartoons seems more to belong to insomnia and visual gags.  With lots of stars and moons, and more crosshatching than your average TOTM, here are cartoons to face the darkness with.

Next month’s TOTM will be ‘Ocean’.

Every month this website will feature ten to twenty 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, 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 Canberra Times, The Australian Magazine and for various commissions.  Some were done simply for my own pleasure, and were first published in one of my cartoon collections.

    fantastic Judy, the puns and plays on words just made me laugh. Unrequited Love, if only “Food Crawl” worked and I could eat us much as I liked then float away to lose weight.
    Thankyou for waking me with your cartoons again

    Hello Judy! Yours was one of the first emails I opened this morning here in the USA and so glad that I did. I have to thank you for being one of the bright spots in my day. After a very trying past couple of weeks, my favorite cartoonist comes to the rescue again! Peace, love, and levity forever! -T from Boulder, CO
