Topic of the Month – March

Posted on: February 28, 2017

This month’s topic is ‘Monsters’, of all sorts.  Looking at these as a collection, clearly I have issues with bêtes noires (thanks Diane, for the handy hint on how to get the accent on the ‘e’).  But there are monsters of other kinds here too, hope you enjoy them, or whatever it is one does with monsters.

Next month’s TOTM will be ‘Night’.

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.

    Hi Judy,

    How to get the accent you want? ê is easy … Hold down the ‘e’ key and the options will show in a numbered sequence, just hit that number while holding down the key ê is ‘e’ and then 3.

    Well that is how I do it on my Mac.

    Hope that helps and hope you are bearing up in these bleak times.

    Love Diane
