Topic of the Month – March 2018

Posted on: February 27, 2018

This month’s topic is ‘Wings’. Flying, with wings and without, has always featured strongly in my cartoons. I admit I do often wish I could fly, although I am a bit scared of heights so I probably wouldn’t be all that good at it. 

Next month’s topic will be ‘Xtinction’.

Every month this website will feature twenty or so 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 newspapers The Age, The Australian, and in two of my early books, Unrequited Love Nos. 1-100 and If the fruit fits.

    Thanks Judy. Your cartoons have always bought me (and the friends I send your cards to) lots of laughter and pleasure. Thank you.

    All brilliant of course, but I particularly liked “had Agatha always been an angel and they simply hadn’t noticed?”. I know a couple of Agathas.

      Thanks Russ, glad you enjoyed them. Wonder what your Agathas would think of the cartoon.

    My heart broke 11 months ago when my daughter died – so many of these pics reflect bits of me – broken heart, angels, butterflies and wings. I laughed out loud at some too – little sparkling moments 🙂

      Oh TrickyT, very sorry to hear of loss of your daughter. How devastating. Glad the topic resonated with you. I love it that cartoons can be sad as well as happy. Take care.

    Another brilliant batch, Judy, thank you! The angelic afternoon tea particularly caught my eye, since I do try to stop and use pretty cups and saucers when I have my afternoon (and morning) cuppa. It does make a difference!

      Thank you Caitlin. That making a little ceremony of one’s cuppa with a pause and prettiness is a very lovely thing to do. I fail at it generally, but I know it would be a magical thing.

    I often (very often, O joy!) have dreams in which I can fly. I don’t have wings, I just send soaring messages to my muscles and off I go, completely free to explore all sorts of wondrous landscapes and skyscapes .
    It’s a delightful skill to have 🙂

    Love your cartoons, Judy, and love seeing my old favourites again – eg the bowerbird one.
