Judy Horacek

Judy Horacek is a well-known Australian cartoonist and writer. Horacek cartoons are found on greeting cards, tea towels, t-shirts, aprons, mugs and fridge magnets throughout the world. She also makes limited edition prints. Her work has appeared in the Australian, the Sydney Morning Herald, the Age and numerous magazines and journals.

Six collections of Judy’s work have been published, the most recent of which is Make Cakes Not War which was published in Australia by Scribe and in the USA by Andrews McMeel. Her first picture book, Where is the Green Sheep? won the Children’s Book Council of the Year award for Early Childhood in 2005. Judy has since published the delightful Growl, These are My Feet and These are My Hands. Her new picture book, Yellow is my favourite colour, was recently published by Penguin.

Judy’s cartoon collection If you can’t stand the heat was published by Scribe in October 2010 and prompted Readings to call for ‘Judy for PM!’
