    • SOME MYTHS ABOUT EDITORIAL CARTOONING
    • MYTH #1
      Editorial cartoons all have to be drawn in a “certain style,”
      ie; cross-hatched shading, big heads small bodies, heavily detailed, lots of labels, etc
    • TRUTH!
      Editorial cartoons span many different artistic styles and formats.
      There is no “correct” way for an editorial cartoon to look.
    • MYTH #2
      An editorial cartoon fails if it
      is not funny.
    • TRUTH!
      The purpose of an editorial cartoon is to offer commentary, and make the reader think. Sometimes commentary is funny, sometimes not. Editorial cartoons serve a different purpose than say, Family Circus or Cathy.
    • MYTH #3
      An editorial cartoon has to involve caricatures and politicians.
    • TRUTH!
      Many artists in the editorial cartooning subculture dislike the phrase “political cartoon” for precisely this reason. An editorial cartoon offers commentary about anything, politicians are but one potential target.

      A cartoon that uses labeled visual symbols to make its point, usually by comparing a non-political situation to a political one.

      ABSTRACT IMAGE
      A cartoon that evokes a general theme by using an image that seems to sum up a broad situation.
    • TYPE #3
      TEXT BASED
      A cartoon that makes its point largely through character dialogue.
    • SINGLE PANEL
    • COMIC STYLE

      CARICATURE-BASED
