Cartooning has its own discipline and practices. It is a graphic art with a slant toward humor. To many observers, some cartoons seem to be poorly done. Many look like drawings done by 5-year-old children. However, there is more to it than meets the eye.
In this site, we will also learn how to get gag ideas to create humor. We will also discuss about opening up the mind to be receptive to new gag ideas.
Creators of cartoons sometimes venture into other graphic drawings or illustrations. The techniques learnt here can also be applied to other forms of graphic art. Indeed, it is good to supplement cartoon work with other forms of illustration.
Creators of cartoons will need to market their work. We have also included some links and references for the serious cartoonist and illustrator. And then, there is the business of selling your work or promoting your skill. Some handy tips are available here at this site.
Lastly, we would like you to know that the message communicated through cartoons is very powerful. Emotions are powerful. Cartooning is an excellent way to reach the hearts and minds of people.
