Random Life is a collection of over 200 recent cartoons by much-loved cartoonist Judy Horacek. Drawn for her regular spot in the Age (and other publications wise enough to employ her), Judy’s ninth cartoon collection covers subjects as diverse as climate change, feminism, social media, fairy tales, Mondays and zebras.
These are cartoons that make us look anew at the contemporary world. They show us who we are, or who we might be. They make us laugh, or sometimes even cry.
They are about life, and it is random.
Judy Horacek is an Australian cartoonist, writer and illustrator. She has been drawing cartoons for about twelve years now and has worked for a multitude of community groups, unions, small magazines and good causes.
Her work is often concerned with feminism, the environment and social justice issues. Six collections of her cartoons have been published. Major retrospective exhibitions of her work have been held at the National Gallery of Victoria, the National Museum of Australia in Canberra. She has also had numerous solo and group exhibitions of her cartoons and her prints.
