Topic of the month – September 2017

Posted on: August 31, 2017

This month’s topic is ‘Social Media’, both the blessing and the curse of our 21st century western world lives.  I’m a frequent user of Instagram, Facebook and Twitter (follow me! friend me! look at me!) and I love them, but I also love taking the mickey out of them.  In the best of all possible worlds, I would live in the moment and out in nature, but it isn’t and I don’t.

Next month’s TOTM will be ‘Therapy’.

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.

    Every cartoon is spot on – brilliant! They either made me laugh or cringe with how accurate they are. 🙂

      Thanks Lorraine, glad you liked them. It’s the world now. But social media is how I know you, so it’s not all bad!

    As always, Judy the curious, Judy the humorous, Judy the wise, Judy the modern sage, philosopher and ‘fool’ (in the William Shakespeare sense).

    All the best with the exhibition, will try to ‘crawl ‘cross’ the continent (from the Indian Ocean Outpost) to see it.

      I like all the appellations. Shakespearean fool particularly, that’s very high praise. The other side of the country is so far away, promise me you won’t really try to crawl. 🙂

    Brilliant, as always – witty, perceptive and thought-provoking! As a librarian I esoecially love the one with the reader being asked about Facebook. Good luck with your exhibition.
