forms of art has to be cartooning. Borders do not seem to exist on actually what it is. A cartoon can have a flat 'funny paper' look, or a 'caricature' can be grossly distorted, yet very real in appearance. The art of a 'comic book' is an advanced form of cartooning, merging with illustration. Political cartoons can look very dark, but also very human. The 'blending' of the genre is a broad arena, even posing a challenge to myself to making the decision as to which of my drawings will be on the illustration portion of my web site, and which would reside on the cartooning page. I possess cartoon drawings from when I was 6 years old.
