Topic of the Month – May 2016

Posted on: May 1, 2016

This month’s topic is ‘Dreams’.  The ones you have when sleeping and the ones you have when awake.  Either of which can come tumbling down around your ears in cartoon world same as the real world, but there’s some good stuff too.  And quite a bit of yearning.

Every month this website will feature ten to twenty Horacek cartoons on a chosen topic. I chose them alphabetically – next month’s topic will be something starting with E.  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 Australian Magazine, The Canberra Times and in some one-off commissions.

    I always enjoy these collections! The ‘I have a dream’ one made me laugh out loud, but I think the sloths one is my favourite of these, and I’m okay if that reveals something about me. 🙂

      I love the sloths, it always makes me smile. Not sure what all the cartoons reveal about me, but it’s too late to worry about that now.

      Thanks Julie. As I said to Al, maybe someone should work out a psychology test to see what one’s cartoon preferences reveal. Or maybe not.

    Classic cartoons Judy. Esp love the “Guess I wasn’t asleep” and the “Grader” dreams.

      Thanks Al. Maybe someone should work out a psychology test about what your preferred cartoons say about you (not you in particular Al, just ‘you’ in general). Could be interesting.
