Topic of the Month – June 2017

Posted on: May 31, 2017

This month’s topic is ‘Preview’, in honour of the imminent launch of my new cartoon collection, Random Life, published by Horacek Press (me!) and available in bookshops in Australia from July 3 2017. All the cartoons are from the new book, and they all have something in them starting with ‘P’.

Next month’s TOTM will begin with ‘Q’.

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 newspaper and Overland magazine, and are all featured in my new book, Random Life, my ninth cartoon collection.

    BRILLIANT
    I love the elephant in the room with the remote and the save the planet and the replies from those ……. save their wealth. Sadly it is a true reflection.
    Great work Judy

      Cartoonists are unlike actors in that sense – we nearly always like working with children and animals. Also, the large number of pachyderms definitely skewed it a bit. Glad you liked them.

      In this context they’re Pachyderms, i.e. P things. Glad you love them whatever the name
