Topic of the Month – December 2016

Posted on: November 30, 2016

This month’s topic is ‘Kristmas and New Year’.  Generally I dislike spellings of words starting with ‘c’ with a K (you will never find me anywhere near a Krispy Kreme for example) but as the Topic of the Month is alphabetical, and K happens to co-incide with December, I felt I could do little else.  It is surprisingly hard to find K topics amongst my cartoons.  n.b. not kartoons

Wishing everyone merry and happy things, and a wonderful end of year, to honour in whatever way you fancy.

There will be no January TOTM.  The next topic will be in February 2017, and it will be something beginning with L.

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.

    It is so good to take some time out to chuckle over your Khristmas cartoons. Thank you.

    Also the book I bought (I am Woman Hear me Roar) went down a treat with my daughter-in-law. And the children’s book about “This and That” is loved by my grand daughter.
    Have two more books as Christmas gifts for my daughter and niece. I look forward to seeing them chuckle also.

    Best wishes for a lovely happy Khristmas, and good health and contentment in 2017.
    Cheers,
    Lita

      Hi Lita, glad you enjoyed the cartoons, and thanks for giving my stuff so widely to your family. Glad to hear that your grandaughter loves This and That, I really enjoyed making that book. Have you seen the new one, Ducks Away! – that was fun too. Wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic 2017, full of joys and adventures.

    Hi Judy,
    I was a bit late getting to these, but still enjoyed them just as much. I particularly liked the “No War” and loved the “Please turn off you mobile phones”. Look forward a new year of great cartoons.
    Thanks, Pat

    I loved this month’s cartoons. Even those I’ve seen before. Christmas Island one is poignant, sad and cuts through the proverbial…

    Thanks for keeping on keeping on.

    Merry Kristmas Judy!
    I’ve just chuckled through all of these – as funny/ironic/poignant as ever.
    May 2017 bring all sorts of goodies to your door!
    Much love, Libby

    As always, I love your work but especially these Christmas themed cartoons. They are wonderful. My Father Christmas tea towel always has pride of place in the kitchen at this time of year (along with the “woman with a present”, another favourite). Wishing you all the very best for the festive season and a fabulously creative happy New Year!

      Thanks Jan, lovely to hear that. The people who made the teatowels aren’t doing them much any more, so treasure what you have. A wonderful Christmas Etc time to you and yours. Here’s to 2017!
